    HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (March 23, 2012) -- Archery is a great way to sharpen skills, build self-esteem and create a stronger atmosphere for success in the classroom.

    This weekend thousands of students from more than 70 schools will be showcasing those skills in the Arkansas National Archery in the Schools Program (ANASP) state tournament.

    The tournament is part of the National Archery in the Schools Program and is in conjuction with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission's education division.

    The archery program involves students beginning in the fourth grade continuing through their high school senior year. Students learn archery skills, as well as an outdoor hobby they may enjoy for the rest of their lives.

    Archers will be competing for trophies, medals and scholarships. The elementary school division took aim yesterday (results) and the middle and high school division kicks off today. Click here for a complete schedule.

    THV's Lauren Clark is live in Hot Springs with a preview of the tournament. Tune in to 'Today's THV This Morning Saturday' from 6-8 a.m.
