BEF Launches Nationwide Junior State Championship Program. ~ Samm Diep-Vidal

August 20, 2014 (Denver, CO): The Billiard Education Foundation (BEF) proudly announces its nationwide Junior State Championship program.

The long awaited national program is an opportunity for each state to showcase their top young billiard stars. Through junior state championships, these student-athletes earn entry into the BEF Junior Nationals where they have the opportunity to compete for academic scholarships and a chance to represent the U.S. at the annual World Championships.

Each state may host up to four junior state championships, one for each of the four age divisions held at junior nationals: 18 & Under Boys; 18 & Under Girls; 14 & Under Boys; and 14 & Under Girls.

There are three ways to get involved! Host, Sponsor, or Compete in a Junior State Championship event.

HOSTS: Help grow the future of our sport by hosting a Junior State Championship. Qualify your local young players for the BEF Junior Nationals and reserve your room as the “home of” your state’s Junior State Championship.

Hosts always receive a sponsored prize package exceeding the value of their commitment, along with first dibs for the next year.

SPONSORS: Sponsors help keep participation costs affordable for the junior players in turn encouraging more participation. Exclusive sponsorship opportunities are still available for this national opportunity. We are a 501(c)(3) so your contribution is tax deductible as permitted by law.
