Ohio-( On March 4, 2017 IBO will host the first Ohio NASP/IBO 3D Challenge in Columbus Ohio. 256 student archers from 21 schools in Ohio are registered to attend. The tournament will be held at the Ohio Expo Center and in conjunction with the 2017 Arnold Sports Festival.

Awards will be given to the 1st – 5th place individual archers in each division, and 1st – 3rd place teams in each division will also be awarded.

The event, which begins at 11:30 am, is open to the public. Admission fee is $15 in advance and $20 at the door for adults and free to those 14 years and younger. Admission includes total access to the Arnold Fitness EXPO. The tournament runs throughout the day with the awards ceremony set for 5:30 p.m.

In May 2014, The International Bowhunting Organization (IBO) and the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) joined forces to implement an exciting additional shooting activity for student archers.

The NASP/IBO 3D Challenge format will be familiar and inviting to current NASP students in grades 4-12. NASP kids compete on multiple ranges each containing 6 North American game animal targets. The targets will be placed in front of a diagonal backstop curtain 10-15 meters from the shooting line. These are the same distances students shoot in NASP tournaments.

Instead of normal 3D scoring zones these special targets will feature custom scoring rings equal to the size and shape of the 9 and 10 rings on NASP bullseye targets. So, the kids will know they are shooting the same size targets at the same distances as they have grown accustomed to in NASP. Archers use the same NASP bows, arrows and accessories they use in target archery.
