4-H youth enrolled in the Shooting Sports project can participate in the State Shoot in any division. Registration must be done through your 4HOnline profile in FairEntry by the registration deadline of July 31st.

Entry requirements

4-H members will be considered eligible to participate in the Missouri 4-H State Shooting Sports State Match if they, and the county program, meet these requirements:

  • Contestants must have completed the project that he or she is competing in as of Aug. 31 of current 4-H year and must be enrolled in the discipline entered.
  • Each youth must qualify for state competition for each individual event by participating in a contest with the same rules as the state contest (see qualifying requirements below).
  • By their signature, the county youth specialist or youth program assistant is verifying that these requirements have been met.

Qualifying requirement

Participation in an actual or simulated/mock contest under the instruction of an adult leader that is 4-H certified (certification current) is required for members to enter the state contest. The member must shoot the same course of fire, in the same event in the simulated contest as he or she will enter in the state contest. This may be an “official” county shoot, another county’s shoot or simply a mock contest under the supervision of the certified leader. The same target, same distance, same rules, same range setup and same safety requirements as the state contest must be followed.

A full list of the rules and requirements for the 4-H State Shoot can be found in the supplemental materials below, as well as directions, ribbon standards and how youth recognition at the county level works.
