HOW THE DRAWING PROCESS WORKS

 

Application Deadline

School groups must submit their application from the Arizona Game and Fish website before 5:00 p.m., Friday, September 19th, 2014.  Submitting your application is just the first step in the drawing process and is not a guarantee that your group will receive a program.

The Drawing

All school group applications will be placed in a random drawing process that will occur within one week after the deadline date. Applications selected in the random drawing will be forwarded to our two Sport Fishing Education contractors, who will immediately begin contacting those selected applicants to schedule a program.  Our sport fishing contractors will only be contacting those applicants who were selected in the random drawing and those applicants will be contacted by phone or email no later than October 31st, 2013.  Scheduling occurs on a first come, first serve basis so please reply promply when you are contacted.

 

What happens to those applications not selected in the random drawing?

All applications that were not selected in the drawing will be sent to the appropriate Regional office of the Arizona Game and Fish Department depending on the location of the school.  Regional Game and Fish employees will review the applications and try to schedule as many school applicants as they can.

If you are not contacted by anyone to discuss scheduling a sport fishing program, then you will not be receiving a Sport Fishing Education program from the Department this school year.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department would like to be able to provide a Sport Fishing Education program for every applicant but the Department continues to receive many more applications than our staff and resources can accommodate. 

If you have any questions about our Sport Fishing Education Program, the drawing process or loaner equipment, please call Marci Alderman, Sport Fishing Education Coordinator at (623) 236-7240 or Pam Ostwinkle, Conservation Education Administrative Assistant at (623) 236-7219.
