New Movers, Shakers

A new award to honor those under 30

Page Pearce is the first winner of the Hall of Fame’s new category, “New Movers, Shakers, designed for those under 30 whose career achievement might not qualify them for the Hall of Fame. Pearce is a world-renown competitive archer who doubles as a youth outdoors instructor who has networked with the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation. She won her first international competition in Turkey at age 13, and now at 22, she holds state, national and world titles in competitive archery, Paige has recorded the highest score ever marked by a woman in the history of the sport. She won for the Western Classic, the largest outdoor 3D target competition on the world, this past year for the fifth time and fourth in a row. Using archery to travel the world, she has ventured t to China, Columbia, Turkey, Germany, France and El Salvador.

She has parlayed her success, poise and ability to connect to others into the lead instructor at the Kids Outdoor Sports Camp (KOSC), which runs in four sessions, in Northern California. In turn, that inspired an invitation from the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation this past fall to its annual event in Washington D.C., where she met and shared time with the Interior Secretary, undersecretary, chief of the Department of Agriculture, and many members of Congress and CSF, where she provides a link to the future of youth in the outdoors.
