August Show to Fund Scholarship Program Through AQHA
Washington State Quarter Horse Association is proud to announce that they will be hosting the Region One Scholarship Show in conjunction with Oregon and Alaska AQHA State Affiliates. All proceeds from the show will go to fund a life-long $5,000.00 annual regional scholarship endowment for youth through the AQHA foundation. As of press, over $45,000 has been raised and pledged in our kick-off campaign. Our goal is to raise $100,000 in five years.
The Region One Scholarship Show shall be run in the same format as last year’s regional show—mark the dates of August 14-17. August 14 will be a one judge novice show, followed on the 15-17 with a three AQHA pointed judge format. WSQHA has committed to donating buckles to the novice classes and OQHA and WSQHA have donated 15 AQHA All Around Style trophies. Stay tuned for more fabulous prizes as we work with our new corporate sponsors for this event.
Don’t forget to visit the new WSQHA.com web site! We are excited to launch a much needed overhaul to the association’s web site. Check out the up-to-date forms and information. Have questions on how you can pledge to the scholarship or want to join WSQHA? Contact me, Lisa Gardner, at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to answer any questions.
