Youth Board Update - May 2021


Our first New Jersey show is almost here!   Looking forward to seeing all of you at our NJQH Dream Show May 13 – 16!


Our youth are selling “Dream Big” raffle tickets – so if you like the idea of winning $500 for 1st, $250 for 2nd or $100 for 3rd, see any youth member to buy your ticket for only $5 per ticket.  Gotta be in it to win it!


Points for the year end awards started with the fantastic Delaware Spring Classic Show that was hosted at the Dream Park in April – congratulations to everyone who earned points at that show and a big THANK YOU to our friends at DQHA for a great show!  (The youth members really enjoyed the fun and lots of laughs with the games and volleyball too.)  We’ve got five upcoming NJ shows to earn more points for the year end awards - - check out and like our Facebook page for all the show details.   Click here - -  NJ QHA Facebook Page

Youth Board Reminder - May 2021


Our first NJQHA show is approaching fast! We will be holding our first in-person meeting will be Saturday, May 15th, a half hour after the last class. We have several exciting agenda items to discuss including fundraisers, t-shirts, NYATT Teams and a upcoming youth highlight. Please remember to bring $10.00 worth of lottery scratch-off tickets for our upcoming raffle. Plus, you will need to hand in your ad payment ($150) and completed form. Remember, you do not need to hand in the accompanying ad at that time, however, please send them to me as soon as you are able to.


Looking forward to seeing you all at the show!!
