NOVEMBER 5, 2018- American Horse Publications knows all about students with a passion for horses and equine media. The AHP Student Award program, which began in 1993, was initiated to promote awareness to students of the career opportunities available in equine publishing. “AHP’s involvement with students is a rewarding experience for both the students and the association,” says AHP Executive Director Chris Brune. “Not only does it offer students a chance to learn about a career they may be passionate about, but it has also given equine media a long list of talented young people who are an asset to our industry.”
“Attracting young people with a passion for horses and media is important to sustain our industry,” continues Brune. “This year, AHP has increased the Travel Award to $1,000 and extended the application deadline date.” AHP will promote the Student Award to colleges throughout the U.S. and via its social media channels and member publications.
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.
If you know a student who could benefit from the AHP Student Award Contest, please encourage them to apply for this award.
