How to Make a Nomination for the Hall of Fame
The Michigan Trapshooting Association Hall of Fame and Museum’s mission is to collect, preserve, and present the history of trapshooting in Michigan; to memorialize the sport of trapshooting in Michigan; and to cultivate among its audience an awareness and appreciation of the past history of trapshooting in Michigan.

The Michigan Trapshooting Association Hall of Fame and Museum serves as an educational resource of the Michigan Trapshooting Association and accomplishes its mission by:

– Giving recognition to Michigan individuals, living and deceased, who over the years, have distinguished themselves in registered trapshooting competitions by winning events at State, Zone, Satellite Grand and Grand American levels;

– Recognizing those Michigan individuals, living or deceased, who have contributed outstanding work in the promotion, administration, management, improvement, and growth of registered trapshooting;

– Collecting and maintaining historic artifacts and materials pertaining to Michigan trapshooting, which will be available to the shooting population, general public, and future generations of both.

HOF Inductees: Vern Stalter and Caroline V Cookingham (also known as Mrs L C Cookingham) will be inducted at the 2022 State Shoot. Vern and Caroline have each won numerous shooting awards and have given their time in support of the MTA and Michigan Trapshooting. All are invited to attend the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Saturday, July 2, 2022.

MTA Hall of Fame Scholarships: There were no scholarship applications accepted due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.
