Guidelines and Rules: DEADLINE: AUGUST 22nd, 2014!!
The awards outlined below are for ATAA members only. *Exception see Junior Achievement*
We will use the overall votes to determine the winner, so the more people that vote the better chance to win, in case of a tie the President or Vice-President may be asked to step in for the tie breaker, as long as one of them is not up for the award.
The “Leadership Award” will be voted on by board/committee members.
Junior Achievement Award: A youth (<18) who participates in promoting the breed and/or the registry. The youth does not need to be a member to be nominated for this award, but THIS IS NOT a riding award. This award is to recognize an activity or project outside of riding, examples being a project for school, a 4-H poster, educational program through Pony Club etc. Please send either pictures of the project or a short description of what the said youth’s project entailed.
Publicity Award: Any registered horse or member who brings the breed and/or registry into the public eye (example: magazine article, newspaper, television, etc).
Golden Achievement Award: A member >60 years old that has actively promoted, volunteered, or somehow contributed to furthering the breed or registry.
Leadership Award: A board or committee member in the Assocation that shows great skills in leadership, ambition, promotion, and teamwork amongst fellow members.
