An Opportunity for Students to Reach their Dreams of a Career in Equine Media through the AHP Student Award Contest
Application Deadline Date is February 15, 2019
The 2019 AHP Student Award Contest recognizes the talents of students by awarding up to three $1,000 travel awards to attend the AHP Annual Equine Media Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico on May 30 – June 1, 2019. Travel Award winners have an opportunity to meet leading equine media professionals and discuss career possibilities during the three days of educational sessions and related networking activities. One Travel Award winner will be selected at the conference as the 2019 Student Award winner and receive a cash award of $1,000.
“Attracting young people with a passion for horses and media is important to sustain our industry,” says AHP Executive Director Christine Brune. “This year, AHP has increased the Travel Award to $1,000 and extended the application deadline date. If you know a student who could benefit from the AHP Student Award Contest, please encourage them to apply for this award.”
AHP offers other opportunities for students including Student membership available to high school, college, and graduate students for annual dues of $25, and the AHP Internship Program, which offers college students an opportunity to intern at equine publishing media or businesses and gain valuable hands-on work experience.
