The 2014 APHA Hall of Fame class will be inducted March 1, 2015, at the annual APHA Convention in Fort Worth, Texas. Now, however, it’s time to look ahead toward nominations for the class of 2015.
New online nomination forms make it easier than ever to get your nominations in by January 15. Visit apha.com/foundation and click the Hall of Fame button to easily get information on the selection criteria as well as the nomination forms for both people and horses.
Before you complete the form, make sure you understand the criteria and have all the pertinent information at your fingertips.If you need more space than the form allows, please submit it in writing on 8.5″ x 11″ sheets, not exceeding a total of four printed pages. Verbal nominations for Hall of Fame inductees will not be accepted.
Nominees automatically remain on the ballot for further consideration for a total of five consecutive years, if not selected upon initial nomination—therefore, it is not necessary to re-nominate a person or horse during that period. It is suggested, however, that updated information be provided (such as updated contact information, additional awards, etc.) After a total of five years, the nominee must be resubmitted for consideration.
To date, a total of 36 individuals and 34 horses who have significantly influenced the Paint Horse industry have been named to the APHA Hall of Fame. For information about attending the Hall of Fame induction ceremony, visit apha.com/events/convention or contact Theresa Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org.
