AQHA has made the decision to modify the 2020 AQHA Awards Celebration from its traditional format to protect the health and safety of attendees. 

The 2019 year-end award recipients will be recognized with a special video that will premiere during the Farnam AQHA World Championship Show and be shared via Facebook Live to nearly 1 million AQHA Facebook fans. Award winners will have the opportunity to receive their award during the corresponding Level 3 class awards presentation during the Farnam AQHA World and will also be showcased on AQHA.com.

If you are attending the 2020 Farnam AQHA World and would like to receive your award at the show, please RSVP here by Friday, October 16. Awards will not be shipped to the event if AQHA does not receive confirmation that the award winner or a representative will be in attendance. We also ask individuals who are not planning to attend to RSVP for AQHA to ship your award directly to you. If you have additional questions, please contact highpoint@aqha.org. 

The youth high-point winners are showcased each year during the Parade of Teams at the Built Ford Tough AQHYA World Championship Show in Oklahoma City.
