Its open to any high school senior in the nation, and weve had a lot of students," Bell said, adding, "They come from not only Arkansas, but Iowa, Michigan and Illinois."
The Stuttgart contest has awarded more than $60,000 over 30 years to young duck callers attending 32 different colleges and universities in 13 states, according to Bell.

On Nov. 23, hopefuls can give their best feather-ruffling calls for this year's scholarship.
