NHSBA shooting competition at Luella High School helps teens prepare for high school diplomas

A non-profit focused on mentoring teens through playing basketball hosted a shooting competition in metro Atlanta.

The National High School Basketball Association's event was March 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Luella High School in Locust Grove. 

Event organizers said about 60 kids ages 13 and older shot a basketball for one minute in a "Hot Shot" format to see how many shots they could make to win prizes. An app tracked the number of shots they made. 

Participants were eligible for different prizes. 

NHSBA was founded by Deuntate Copeland in 2006 and is a 501c3 non-profit with a goal of supporting teens for a successful adulthood by guiding them to high school graduation, college or trade school.
