2015-2016 Presidential Service Project: PAINTSTRONG

AjPHA President Sydney Schmidt is excited to introduce her 2015–2016 Presidential Service Project, Paint Strong. Designed to attract new Youth members, the components of Paint Strong are simple:

  • Raise money to award a $500 scholarship to an AjPHA member in each Zone—14 in all. That requires fundraising of at least $7,000.
  • Reward an AjPHA member recipient in each of APHA’s 14 Zones to receive the scholarship. All current AjPHA members as of May 15, 2016, will automatically be eligible for the random drawing, which will take place at APHA.
  • Recognize our Paint Strong scholarship recipients at the 2016 AjPHA Youth World Championship Show.Help us Paint StrongTo accomplish the goal of awarding 14 random scholarships to AjPHA members in 2016, we need your help. All Youth, APHA members and regional clubs are invited to get in on the Paint Strong action.
  • Participate in Paint Strong fundraising. That might including sending in a personal check or hosting a fundraiser of your own, like a benefit horse show class, bake sale or more.
  • Encourage new youth to join APHA. The potential to earn a scholarship just for being a member could be a compelling reason to join the APHA family.
  • Spread the word about Paint Strong. The more people who know about the project means the more success we’ll have. ALL funds raised for Paint Strong will be distributed through the 14 scholarships.
