Sharon Rushton Award

Sharon_Rushton_HGB_WebThe Sharon Rushton Award was initiated by the American Sportfishing Association (ASA) to recognize excellence in writing for and about youth in the outdoors.

The award, now sponsored by Daisy Outdoor Products, commemorates the dedication Sharon Rushton has shown to the outdoors, particularly through her work with the Hooked On Fishing, Not Drugs program.

Eligible entries:  Any work in the EIC categories published during the contest dates for or about youth in the outdoors. Submit originals and copies as indicated in the appropriate contest category directions. The Sharon Rushton Award is judged independently of the EIC contest but uses the same entry form and general entry rules.
