Now is the time to prepare to "kick-off" the 2017-2018 academic year.  September has proven to be the official "Kick-Off" for the Scholastic Anglers Challenge.  For those schools already participating, the fall semester provides an opportunity to develop fishing skills.  All of the hard work and learning from the beginning of the 2016-2017 academic year, through the cold winter months, can be put into practice during the Scholastic Anglers Tournament Series events at area lakes as well as individual school-specific outings.  These opportunities allow students to earn valuable points for the Scholastic Anglers Challenge.

For schools not yet participating, now is the time to PUT YOUR SCHOOLS PRIDE ON THE LINE!  Start a new sport at your school. Increase school spirit, school pride, create long lasting traditions, and start new rivalries!

One teacher and one student-angler can represent a school with no maximums.  The object is to earn as many points as possible in an effort to earn the coveted Scholastic Anglers School Of The Year, Scholastic Angler Of The Year, or a spot in the Scholastic Anglers Elite Eight.  Points can be earned by catching, photographing, releasing, and entering fish; completing fishing related classroom assignments; attending meetings school team meetings or events; participating in the monthly Scholastic Anglers Workshops held on the third Thursday of each month throughout the academic year; and participating in the Scholastic Anglers Tournament Series events during each grading period; giving fishing related presentations to live audiences throughout the school year; wearing official Scholastic Anglers Apparel from Rayjus Outdoors.  Each accomplishment carries a point value and there are many ways to win!
