Share your achievements at the AQHA Level 1 (Novice) Championships with your local newspaper.

Spread the news of your success at the 2014 SmartPak West or Nutrena East AQHA Level 1 (Novice) Championships. AQHA offers an easy way to share your achievements with your hometown newspaper.

Exhibitors, simply choose a press release template from the Competitor Resources section of the Level 1 Championships website. Complete the easy-to-fill-out release, and send it electronically to your local newspaper to ensure that your achievements are highlighted for your community to see.

The press release templates have everything your newspaper needs to get started in telling the story of your accomplishments.

AQHA will send press releases and photos to the hometown newspapers of the Farnam All-Around winners and Rookie high-points. We encourage you to send releases for all other achievements, in and out of the Level 1 Championship arena.

Qualifying for and participating in the Level 1 Championships are major accomplishments. AQHA hopes you’ll take every opportunity to celebrate your accomplishments during your Level 1 Championship journey.
