Pathfinder Award Application Deadline Sept. 13

This prestigious award is given out annually during the evening banquet at SCI’s Annual Hunters’ Convention to a Pathfinder Applicant who is faced with challenges in his or her life that cause this person to find new ways to live and be engaged in outdoor events and projects.

The award includes an all-expense-paid safari to Africa.  Each year, a Pathfinder Award winner is selected from applications submitted by SCI Chapters and individuals.  The award winner is honored for life achievements demonstrating their ability to overcome disabling obstacles while remaining engaged in outdoor activities, helping their community and inspiring others.

Applicant entries for this award must be received by Sept. 13, 2020 and applicants must complete all application and eligibility requirements. For a Pathfinder Application, contact Kathy Butler at kbutler@safariclub.org, or call direct (520) 798-4892 for any questions.

The SCI Foundation Pathfinder program also provides funding to SCI Chapters in support of their activities that engage disabled, terminally ill, wounded military and veterans in outdoor activities.  Often, the reintroduction to nature and hunting helps these hunters find their way to adapt to their life changes and challenges.
