Scholarship Program Details

The New Salem Longbeards Chapter of the NWTF (National Wild Turkey Federation) was formed in 1999, and we held our first banquet in 2000. The chapter has grown rapidly, and now we consistently receive the coveted "Golden Gobbler" and "5 Star Chapter" awards from the Illinois State NWTF Chapter each year.

We are located in Menard County within Central Illinois, and our membership is primarily drawn from Menard and the surrounding counties. (Cass, Mason, Logan, and Sangamon Counties) Come join us in our annual banquets, local events, and our special projects!
