Academy of Achievement

Example of bad variable names

Each year since its inception in 1999, The USPC Academy of Achievement recognizes Pony Club alumni for being outstanding in their chosen fields of expertise. Individuals are nominated by members, leaders, and other alumni for this exceptional award. Up to six alumni are then selected by a national committee and invited to attend the National Youth Congress at the USPC Equine Symposium and Convention. Honorees spend three days participating in small group discussions and activities with National Youth Congress delegates to share career stories, advice, and help the delegates as they focus on personal development.

Nominating Pony Club Alumni

Any USPC member can nominate alumni for the Academy of Achievement. Criteria for nomination include being articulate and comfortable in large groups as well as enjoying working with young people. Individuals can have a career in the equine industry, in the private or public sector, and may or may not still be active in Pony Club. Our alumni honorees come from diverse backgrounds and their unique experiences are helpful in their selection.

Qualifications for nomination include:

  • Outstanding achievement in their chosen profession/field of expertise.
  • A strong Pony Club background.
  • Over 25 years of age.
