Revised Criteria for USDF Youth Volunteer of the Year Award
RELEASE: June 16, 2008
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Ross Creech
The United States Dressage Federation (USDF) has issued revised criteria, effective immediately, for youth members nominated for the USDF Youth Volunteer of the Year Award to allow volunteer hours accumulated between September 1 of the previous calendar year and August 31 of the current calendar year to be included in the required number of hours. This is a change from the previous requirement that volunteer hours must have been accumulated in the current membership year.
Nominations for the USDF Youth Volunteer of the Year Award can be made by any current USDF member and must be submitted to USDF by August 31. The winner of this award is selected by the members of the USDF Youth Executive Board and recognized at the Adequan/USDF Annual Convention. In addition to having their name inscribed on the perpetual trophy housed in the Roemer Foundation/USDF Hall of Fame, the winner will receive a keeper trophy, a $500 Youth Convention Scholarship, and be featured in the collector’s edition of the USDF Connection Yearbook
