John W. “Jack” Sims Youth Challenge
The John W. “Jack” Sims Youth Challenge Program continues for 2020. The Youth Challenge is intended to be an ongoing program that will encourage youth ages 12 and under (Juniors) and ages 13 through 19 (Seniors) to participate in a project that includes Crabbet Arabian horses, along with the support and guidance of an ECAHS mentor. The Youth Challenge was created in memory of John W. “Jack” Sims. Jack was an active member of ECAHS and a strong supporter of educating, training and encouraging youth participation.
We are excited and pleased with past participation and hope for many great years to come. Keep an eye on the show ring for some of our past and present Youth Challenge participants. Encourage young people in their efforts with horses and talk to them about their ambitions and goals. Let them know we are interested in helping them achieve their dreams.
You can support the Youth Challenge by purchasing a Youth Challenge T-shirt or by purchasing a 50/50 Raffle ticket. Please encourage your youth to enter.
A certificate of completion will be awarded each participant and the following monetary awards will be made: Junior Division: 1st place-$100, 2nd place-$75, 3rd place-$50; Senior Division: 1st place $500 Scholarship, 2nd place-$250, 3rd place-$125.
