2021 IALHA Impact Awards nominations

2021 IALHA Impact Awards nominations

Do you know someone who’s making a difference in our association who deserves to be recognized? Do you know a horse that exemplifies the Andalusian or Lusitano breed?

For many years, the IALHA has been recognizing members and IALHA registered horses for their achievements and their contribution to our community with the annual Year End Awards.

Since no awards were given in 2020, we have taken the opportunity to refresh and reimagine this recognition as they resume this year.

The list of prior awardees reads like a who’s who of people and horses who have had a tremendous impact on the Andalusian and Lusitano breeds, and the IALHA. Therefore, these awards are returning in 2021 as the IALHA Impact Awards.

This year’s nomination process asks for a description of the Impact the candidate has had.
For example for a horse:
– What awards or recognitions has the horse received?
– Have they achieved distinction in a discipline(s) or sport?
– How has their progeny been successful?

If nominating member, describe how they
– have acted as an ambassador,
– represented our association in a positive light,
– had a positive impact on our community, or
– represent our association in a specific sport, or discipline.

The description of how they contribute to the mission of our association is what the committee will utilize to select the winners.

So tell a story. The more detailed the better.  If desired, up to 2 additional supporting documents may be attached as well.

At least one photograph and a short biography will be requested from the winners. Portions of the nomination write-up may be used in biographies of the winners as well.

All current members can nominate themselves or be nominated by another member. Youth members are those 18 years old and younger. Candidates who are not selected may be re-nominated for the same or another impact award the following year. Any IALHA registered horse is eligible.

When complete, send the form to info@nullialha.org

Entries are due Wednesday, September 8th.

We hope you will participate in these refreshed recognition awards and nominate our members and horses for the 2021 IALHA Impact Awards!
