Pennsylvania Volunteers Win Top Awards at NWTF Convention

Edgefield, S.C — The Pennsylvania State Chapter of the National
Wild Turkey Federation received two L.A. Dixon Memorial Chapter
Awards during the NWTF’s 34th annual National Convention and Sport
Show, which was sponsored by Midway USA, in Nashville, Tenn.

The Pennsylvania State Chapter was recognized by the NWTF for
winning third place in the Highest Total Net/Net Dollars Raised and
More Than 20,000 Members categories. The chapter has been a leader
in the NWTF’s chapter system, and a credit to the NWTF.

The L.A. Dixon Memorial awards are given in honor of a man who
gave unselfishly during the NWTF’s early years. Dixon founded the
NWTF’s North Carolina State Chapter, served at the national, state
and local levels and traveled thousands of miles at his own expense
carrying the NWTF’s message to all who would listen. The NWTF
honors Dixon’s achievements through the L.A. Dixon Memorial Chapter
Awards.

“The NWTF’s volunteers and chapters make the Federation’
conservation and outreach work possible,” said George Thornton,
NWTF CEO. “We’re proud to present our chapters with the L.A. Dixon
Awards to honor their excellent performances and unrivaled
dedication.”

The National Wild Turkey Federation is a nonprofit conservation
organization that works daily to further its mission of conserving
the wild turkey and preserving our hunting heritage. Through
dynamic partnerships with state, federal and provincial wildlife
agencies, the NWTF and its more members have helped restore wild
turkey populations across the country, spending more than $306
million to conserve 14 million acres of habitat for all types of
wildlife.

Last year, NWTF chapters hosted nearly 2,300 Hunting Heritage
Super Fund banquets to raise funds for the NWTF’s conservation and
outreach initiatives.
