Agriculture is the No. 1 industry in North Carolina. By providing funds to N.C. 4-H and FFA, the Farm Credit Associations of North Carolina are working together to make sure tomorrow’s leaders in agriculture have a bright future. Join us as we work together to honor the contributions of these organizations and enable opportunities for young people in our rural communities.

In their first year, the Pull for Youth Sporting Clays Events raised more than $100,000 for North Carolina 4-H and FFA. The events were made possible by the support of 150 sponsors, over 350 shooters, and 150 volunteers.

Individual shooter registrations are $100. Pre-registration is required to participate in each of the three sporting clays events. Sponsorship opportunities are also available and start at just $300. Please visit for more information.
