The time has come to nominate individuals who support our industry’s youth to receive the Merle Wood Humanitarian Award. After taking a year break, to slightly revamp the award, the American Quarter Horse Foundation is seeking individuals who exemplify an ethic of meritorious kindness and benevolence in providing opportunities for all young people to be involved with the American Quarter Horse. Applications for nominations are due May 1, 2011.
Nominees must distinguish themselves through non-compensated humanitarian endeavors. The award is not designed to honor individuals who have supported youth activities primarily through financial contributions. Previous recipients and Hall of Fame inductees are not eligible to receive this award. Awards and achievements received through industry show and/or racing competition are not a factor in the selection process.
To nominate someone for this award, please visit the Merle Wood Humanitarian Award page to learn more and download the application.
The award is presented during the annual AQHA Convention’s Hall of Fame Banquet. Due to recent revisions to the award program, a recipient will not be awarded during the 2011 Convention.
For more information, please contact (806) 378-5029 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Completed applications can be mailed to (no faxes please):
