DUCKS UNLIMITED “SWEET 16” COLLEGIATE CHAPTERS RECOGNIZED NATIONALLY
Bemidji State Chapter plays a vital role in supporting conservation efforts

BEMIDJI, Minn., Feb. 22, 2011

As spring rolls in each year, Ducks Unlimited traditionally announces its Sweet 16 college chapters throughout the nation. This year, the Bemidji State University Chapter made it into the elite group out of nearly 120 DU collegiate chapters.

To qualify for the “DU Sweet 16,” chapters needed to raise more than $11,000 in grassroots income during the 2010 calendar year. Collegiate chapters throughout the country have raised more than $513,680 this year, with $290,650 coming from the Sweet 16 chapters.

“Ducks Unlimited’s university program has become a critical part of our overall fundraising program. Not only is it vital from a direct fiscal perspective, but it’s also a source of organizational awareness and a strong and consistent volunteer base,” said David Schuessler, DU’s national director of grassroots fundraising. “The volunteers who make up these 16 college chapters are the future conservation leaders of not only DU, but all conservation efforts in the country. I personally thank them for their efforts.”

Winona State University is #17, pretty good for how small our school is. This year we are gunning for that sweet 16 spot, after our event this year, I think we got it!

Congrats to Bemidji though, wonderful job.

besides the fact that I didn't win anything it was a fun event this year. Tons of people. How is it that the people who win one thing win everything? Some people won like 5 times. :lol:

We were at 17 for 2009 and jumped to 8 so it can be done (and we're even smaller than you!) How did you guys do at your event?

I don't see us relinquishing our status as top MN college chapter this year.

Thanks for coming out Sabin. You should still come back to the chapter.
