You can trace the origins of the President’s Hundred tab to the National Rifle Association’s American Military Rifle Championship Match, which debuted in 1878 at the Creedmoor Rifle Range on Long Island. In 1884, the event’s name was changed to the President's Match for the Military Rifle Championship of the United States, and in 1892 it was relocated to National Guard Camp, Sea Girt in New Jersey.

The passage of a Congressional amendment in 1903 established the National Board for the Promotion of Rifle Practice (NBPRB) and National Matches held jointly by the NBPRB and the National Rifle Associationa, and the President’s Match was incorporated into this program at the same time. But what elevated the competition firmly into the spotlight was President Theodore Roosevelt’ letter of congratulations to the winner of the 1904 President’s Match.

Nonetheless, it wasn’t until 1957 that the event was relaunched under the title “The President’s Hundred,” with the tab of the same name being awarded to the top 100 scorers. Because the event had been open for civilian participation since 1921, the President’s Hundred is the only Army skill tab that can be earned by civilians.

Today, the event is held at Camp Perry in Ohio and is run by the Civilian Marksmanship Program.
