American Horse Publications has been rounding up students with a career goal that combines their passion for horses and media for over 25 years. The success of this continued effort is a long list of talented young people who have become assets to the equine media industry.
“AHP’s involvement with students is a rewarding experience for both the students and the association,” says AHP Executive Director Chris Brune. “Not only does it offer students a chance to learn about a career they may be passionate about, but it has also given equine media a long list of talented young people. Attracting young people with a passion for horses and media is important to sustain the equine industry.”
The 2020 AHP Student Award Contest recognizes the talents of students by awarding up to three $1,000 travel awards to attend the 50th Anniversary AHP Annual Equine Media Conference, held at the Griffin Gate Marriott Resort & Spa in Lexington, Kentucky on May 28-30, 2020. Travel Award winners have an opportunity to meet leading equine media professionals and discuss career possibilities during the three days of educational sessions and related networking activities. One Travel Award winner will be selected at the conference as the 2020 Student Award winner and receive a cash award of $1,000.
AHP offers other opportunities for students including Student membership available to high school, college, and graduate students for dues of $25, and the AHP Internship Program, which offers college students an opportunity to intern at equine publishing media or businesses and gain valuable hands-on work experience.
American Horse Publications offers students interested in a career in equine publishing with several opportunities to participate in its association.
