More than 1,200 student archers from 50 schools will compete in the 2019 Archery in Louisiana Schools (ALAS) State Tournament. Students will be competing for $20,000 in scholarships and a chance to advance to the national tournament.
The event is open to the public. Admission fee is $5 for adults and free to those 17 years old and younger. The tournament runs throughout the day with the awards ceremony set for 7 p.m. This year’s state tournament will include both bullseye and 3-D competitions. Students qualified for the state tournament in two regional events held in January and February.
The ALAS program, administered by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF), is part of the National Archery in Schools Program (NASP), which teaches international target archery skills to students in grades 4-12. About 200 schools and 24,000 students in Louisiana participate in the program. Nationally, more than 14,000 schools and 2.4 million students take part in the NASP program.
