USDF Youth Shining Star Program

Offered by the USDF Youth Programs Committee, this award recognizes outstanding sportsmanship by youth. Anyone other than the nominee’s parent may nominate a youth for this award. All recipients will receive a USDF Shining Star lapel pin and a certificate and will be recognized in USDF Connection and at the Adequan/ USDF annual convention. Shining Star recipients who are current USDF members (Education, Group or Participating) will also be recognized on the USDF website.

USDF Shining Star Award recipients who are USDF Participating Members will be eligible for Ravel Education Grants, which will be used to cover expenses associated with attending an educational dressage event of their choice.
