Youth Scholarship

Youth Scholarship!

Building a strong youth community is part of the mission of Gem State Stock Horse Association. That’s why we’ll be continuing our tradition of awarding one of our youth participants with a scholarship. Eligibility rules are listed below.

The application consists of a written component along with a volunteer requirement.

The application below is for applicants that participated in Gem State during 2020. We’ll be continuing the program for 2021. Full details on this year’s program will be released soon!


– You must be under 18

– You have been involved with GSSHA during 2020

– It is not required that you show with GSSHA to qualify–volunteer work and clinic participation apply!

– Applicants and award winners from previous years are welcome to apply again

You must have volunteered at a minimum of two of our shows in 2020!

Please note that this application is for 2020 participants. We’ll have full details about our 2020 program released soon!


The scholarship amount will be $500-$1000*.

We’ll announce the winner and the scholarship amount on 3/8!

* Final amount will be determined by the GSSHA Board of Directors

Written Component: What We're Looking For

Or, how to make a good entry:

– Full, detailed answers to all questions–treat this like a job or college application and think it through!
– Don’t feel like your answers have to be horse related.
