AHP Student Award

AHP Names Kaycie Timm 2017 Student Award Winner

Searching for students with a passion for both horses and publishing is what AHP has been doing since 1993. The AHP Student Award competition has discovered a long list of talented young people who have become an asset to the equine publishing industry.

In 2017, Kaycie Timm, Taylor Pence, and Annise Montplaisir rose to the top to become this year's AHP Student Award finalists. They earned travel awards to meet leading equine industry professionals and discuss career possibilities during the AHP Equine Media Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona on June 15-17, 2017.

The three finalists were interviewed by the Student Award Committee during the conference to select the winner. Kaycie Timm, a junior at West Texas T&M University, was announced as the 2017 AHP Student Award Winner at the How the West Was Fun Party sponsored by Central Garden & Pet on Friday, June 16, 2017. Kaycie received a cash award of $1,000 plus an all-expense paid trip hosted by Publishers Press to one of their Two-Day Customer Education Seminars in Louisville, Kentucky. The two runner-ups also received a cash award. All cash awards are sponsored by AIM Equine Network.
