ASHA Youth Award Activity Reports due Thursday, January 5



 

Lexington, Kentucky ­– The activity reports for the new ASHA Youth Award must be postmarked by Thursday, January 5, 2006, to be eligible for the new award.

 

The award was developed by the American Saddlebred Horse Association to recognize the hardest working and most active members in the industry.  Activity reports can be downloaded by clicking here, or entering the following link in a web browser, http://www.asha.net/files/youthaward.pdf.

 

They can be mailed to ASHA, Attn: Youth Award, 4083 Iron Works Parkway, Lexington, KY 40511, or faxed to (859) 259-1628. 

 

Youth members can receive points in a number of different areas including attending the ASHA Youth Conference, being a member of a youth club, participating in Junior Judging, earning an ASHA scholarship, volunteering at a horse show, having a paid job in the equine industry and more.

 

Alan F. Balch, ASHA executive secretary, said ASHA recognizes the importance of youth participation. 

 

“The youth of the Saddlebred industry are a big part of the future of the breed,” Balch said.

 

“This new award encourages youth members to venture out and try new programs and activities,” Balch said.  “Hopefully our youth members are enjoying the programs they are participating in and will become the next breeders, trainers and exhibitors.”

 

The award will be presented at the ASHA Youth Conference to participants with the most points in age groups of 13 and under, and 14 through 17.  The ASHA Youth Conference will take place February 17-18, in Lexington at the Embassy Suites Hotel.
