The purpose of the IHSA National All-Academic Award is to recognize the individual academic achievements of our participating undergraduate and alumni members each year. IHSA members will be named to the All-Academic First Team or All-Academic Second Team when they have been nominated by their coach, advisor, or designated representative, and have met the following criteria:
First Team - achieving a grade point average of 3.8 or higher (based on a 4.0 scale)
Second Team - achieving grade point average of 3.5 or higher (based on a 4.0 scale)
A nominee must be a full-time undergraduate student or an alumni rider who is a paid member of the IHSA (and USHJA as per rule 1202 B) and must have participated in a at least one regular season IHSA horse shows during the academic year (as defined by IHSA rules).
A team’s coach, designated college representative, or advisor, must nominate an eligible student or alumni member using the All-Academic Award Reporting Form. The student’s grade point average is based on fall semester grades (not cumulative) and the All-Academic Reporting Form must be signed by the college registrar or official documentation must be attached (be advised that colleges and universities may require the student’s authorization to release their academic record).
Nomination forms must be postmarked by March 18, 2017 and mailed to:
844 Dry Fork Road
Gladys, Virginia 24554
Questions may be directed to Cricket Morris.
IHSA national All-Academic Award winners will be listed in the IHSA National Program and receive a certificate of recognition.
