Awards:  State Championship Medals will be awarded for first, second, and third place in each division.  JOAD Star Pins and Lanyards will be awarded if the qualifying score is met.  The scoring matrix for Star Pins can be viewed at   http://www2.teamusa.org/USA-Archery/Programs/Junior-Olympic-Archery-Development/JOAD-Award-System.aspx .  Please note…if you are planning to shoot for a JOAD Star Pin, the morning round score will not count toward your pin since only 30 arrows will be scored at each distance.  36 are required for the star pin.
