Annual Awards

Pony Club Victoria (PCV) would not be able to operate if not for our amazing people and their commitment to our riders, our horses, and the Pony Club® association.

It is these people that the PCV Annual Awards endeavours to celebrate.

The awards are not about gold medals and trophies. They are about the everyday achievements and contributions made by members of PCV at every level of Pony Club®.  Our awards recognise commitment to our values. These being:

  • teamwork
  • innovation
  • sportsmanship,
  • friendship
  • responsibility
  • a commitment to strive to continue to improve.
  • a strong volunteer work ethic

Recognising the outstanding work that our people do is an essential part of the Pony Club® culture. Now is the time to reflect on the volunteers, coaches, riders, and clubs who are going above and beyond in contributing to making your Pony Club® journey the best it can be, by submitting a nomination form in support of their efforts.

 

Nominations close: Midnight Tuesday 18 October

Selection Process

All nominations will be initially checked by the PCV office to ensure compliance.

All compliant nominations will be forwarded to their respective Zone Committees (Executive only) for judging, and one representative per category per zone will be selected as the state finalists.

All state finalists will then be submitted to the PCV Annual Awards Judging Panel.

PCV Annual Awards Judging Panel will consist of four people, made up of representatives of PCV and the zones.

There will be one award for each category annually. However, the judging panel may not be able to make an award for every category if it determines there is not a submission of sufficient merit to be awarded.
