You are currently viewing Kids All American Fishing Team Program

The Kids All-American Fishing Ambassador program is an annual effort to recognize and reward the best and the brightest of our country’s young anglers. Each year a new team will be selected to serve as Ambassadors for all youngsters symbolizing the positive values and perspectives that are to be had from the simple joy of fishing.

Selection Criteria

Kids All-American Fishing Team ambassadors will be selected on their ability to communicate their joy of fishing and by the examples they set within their community. Selection will not be based on fishing skills or abilities.

Applicants will be asked to submit an essay of 250 words or less on the following subject: “Tell us about your best ever fishing trip. With whom did you fish and why was it so memorable?”

In selecting the recipients an independent committee will review the submitted essays plus recommendations, extracurricular activities, and community involvement to determine the winners.

  • Be 8 to 14 years of age (as of the application deadline).
  • Be enrolled in a public or private school.
  • Be a legal U.S. resident.
  • Have permission from a parent or legal guardian.

Children of employees of Kids All-American Fishing partners are not eligible to apply.
