Youth World Show Scholarships – Donate Now 2016 Donors

Starting with the 2015 AjPHA Youth World Championship Show, the APHF achieved the goal of having an all-scholarship show:

  • The intent is to increase memberships and financial stability for the APHA while providing a method for participants to receive a financial return on the funds spent during a youth show career, and to encourage youth to pursue their academic careers.
  • The program has been expanded from 10 halter classes to every World Championship class.
  • The long-term goal is to establish a Youth World Show Scholarship endowment that will permanently support the Youth World Show.
  • Money will be held in each exhibitor’s name each year they compete and earn scholarships. Scholarship funds must be applied for within one year of high school graduation and will be sent directly to the institution for tuition, books, housing, meals and lab fees only.

There are several ways to contribute for the 2016 AjPHA Youth World Show:

  • Youth World Show Endowment
