United States Dressage Federation Convention Scholarships for Youth Members

USDF Press Release


The United States Dressage Federation (USDF) Youth Executive Board is pleased to announce the availability of the 2004 USDF Youth Convention Scholarships. Packed with educational programs, fun events, a great trade expo, and the USDF National Symposium, the USDF Annual Convention is a valuable event for anyone interested in dressage, including USDF's youth members, who are the future of the sport. The USDF Youth Convention Scholarship will award $750 to four youth members to help defray their costs of attending the convention.

Funds for the scholarships have been raised by the USDF Youth Executive Board through a silent auction held each year at the USDF National Convention & Symposium. The board hopes to be able to continue to increase the funds available for the scholarships and to support special youth-oriented educational programming at future conventions. The USDF Youth Executive Board requests the donation of new or gently used items for this year's silent auction, where convention attendees will be able to bid on such things as custom saddles and art. All auction proceeds will benefit the Youth Executive Board's Convention Scholarship Fund.

One featured item in the 2004 silent auction will be a bronze statue by artist Laran Ghiglieri, titled "Colt's Frolic." This beautiful statue is a limited edition bronze, appraised at more than $29,000.

To apply for the USDF Youth Convention Scholarship or to donate items for the silent auction, contact USDF Director of Programs Sheila Forbes at (859) 271-7879 or at sforbes@usdf.org. The scholarship application is also available at www.usdf.org.

Founded in 1973, the United States Dressage Federation is a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to education, the recognition of achievement, and the promotion of the sport of dressage.
