2018 Youth Hunter Education Challenge National Championship
July 22-27, 2018 Mill Cove Environmental Center Mansfield University, Mansfield, PA
The National Youth Hunter Education Challenge is the pinnacle of the YHEC program. Top-ranked individuals come together, annually, from all across the country to compete for the YHEC National Championship. This event is the most advanced of all YHEC events, and requires all participants to have completed a hunter safety course, as well as a YHEC event at the state level (if your state has one). This unique opportunity allows youth to meet and learn with fellow participants and coaches, and demonstrate the skills they have acquired through hunter education to prove they are the future generation of responsible and ethical hunters.
The NRA will NOT be covering the costs of background checks needed for participants, coaches, volunteers, and anyone staying in Mansfield University Housing who is 18 years of age or older at the time of the event. Information about background checks will be posted after January 1, 2018.
