JACKSON – The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks along with the Mississippi Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks Foundation is pleased to announce another successful year of Archery In Mississippi Schools (AIMS) will conclude on Friday, April 6, 2018 with the final day of the AIMS State Championship. The championship is being held at the Kirk Fordice Equine Center in Jackson, where a number of schools and students have been competing over the past week.
The program, which began in 2005 with 10 schools, is now in over 500 schools across the state with more than 80,000 students participating each year. “Having that many participants a year makes AIMS the largest youth sport in Mississippi and it is continuing to grow,” said Waldo Cleland, AIMS coordinator. Champions will be awarded on Friday after the completion of the tournament.
