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.


– You must be under 18

– You have been involved with GSSHA during 2019

– 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 volunteer at a minimum of two of our shows!


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

We’ll announce the winner and the scholarship amount at our year-end banquet this fall!

* 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.

2020’s questions will be available soon.

Deadlines/How to Apply

Applications are due in early January. An official date will be set after scheduling our annual banquet.
