Competition Categories

Research Projects:

Competitors use experimental design to test a hypothesis. The subject of research can be anything related to horses and/or Pony Club. Research results should be presented on a poster board or tri-fold presentation board and may include samples of materials used in the experiment. The posters will be displayed at the annual meeting. 

There will be two competition categories: oral presentation (competitors must be present) and visual presentations.   

Video Projects:

Competitors create an educational or promotional video. The video should be 10 minutes or less and may cover any topic related to Pony Club. For example, a competitor might create an educational video on making equine first aid kits or a promotional video on the value of joining a Regional Youth Board. Videos may be submitted via flash drive or DVD and will be presented at the annual meeting on a laptop computer for public viewing.   

Fine Arts Projects:

Competitors submit horse or Pony Club related art projects, poetry or short stories. Depending on the number of submissions in each age group, sub-categories may be created for prose, poetry, painting/drawing and/or sculpture. All submissions will be displayed for view at the annual meeting.
