Justin Corbet Memorial Shooting Sports Foundation Grant Awardees

Seward County 4-H Sharp Shooters was awarded $1250.00 in a grant from the Topeka based Justin Corbet Memorial Shooting Sports Foundation, Inc. This money will be used to continue what we have established and help grow our shooting sports program. The Seward County 4-H Sharp Shooters program is designed to help our youth develop life skills such as safety, responsibility, self- motivation, and even team building.

Justin Corbet was a young man, whose life was tragically cut short, who truly loved the great outdoors and shooting sports. Justin Corbet Memorial Shooting Sports Foundation, a 501(c) (3) corporation, is dedicated to his memory and is committed to providing leadership, support, and financial assistance to qualified programs and individuals dedicated to provided family oriented hunting, shooting, and educational activities to youth, women, and persons with disabilities.

The Justin Corbet Memorial Shooting Sports Foundation was established in late 2005 by family friends and associates who share Justin's love of the outdoors and a willingness to help others with the experience. To date, the Foundation has awarded approximately $138,000.00 to qualified organizations.
