Annual Dwight E. Stoltzfus Memorial Trade Scholarship Sporting Clay Classic

At M&E Sporting Clays

DESCCO’s founder, Dwight Stoltzfus, believed that education was essential to keeping a high standard of quality and excellence in the building trades. It was for this reason the scholarship in Dwight’s name was founded. Now, students from the Berks County area who have a desire to work with their hands and learn a trade have the opportunity to earn a scholarship toward their education at the Pennsylvania College of Technology.

Please note, with staff and participant safety in mind, we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Clay Shoot. Save the date for next year’s event which will take place on September 10, 2021. We hope to see you then!

We cordially invite you to support the trades and have a blast at our yearly Sporting Clay Classic. Our event takes place at M&E Sporting Clays- 1414 Moselem Springs Road, Hamburg, PA. All proceeds benefit the Dwight E. Stoltzfus Memorial Trade Scholarship.


“Every day I have the pleasure of working with smart and talented men and women who love to build and create new environments. This is meaningful work as there are countless opportunities in the trades. Our scholarship was created to help those who are driven to build rewarding careers.” Says Nicholas Stoltzfus – President of DESCCO Design & Construction.
