HALL OF FAME

Connecting the past with the present.

NYCHA HALL OF FAME

The NYCHA Youth Hall of Fame inductions are important because they connect the past with the present. They serve to recognize the best of the best and give current youth and families a blueprint for success.

The NYCHA Youth Members Hall of Fame was established to recognize those youth who have made outstanding and unusual contributions to the NYCHA basic purpose, which is the public exhibition and constant promotion of the Cutting Horse. We are proud to honor these individuals who have exhibited a high moral character, good sportsmanship, fairness, and an exemplary contribution of time, effort, and interest in NYCHA and its basic endeavors. To nominate a deserving individual to the NYCHA Youth Members Hall of Fame, a nomination form must be filled out online.

The NYCHA Hall of Fame selection shall consist of education, leadership, and competition. The online form will be reviewed by the NCHA Director of Youth to verify that all the criteria have been met. Once the criteria have been met nominees will be notified by letter of their expectance.

In an effort to make this year’s Youth Hall of Fame inductions as seamless as possible, the NYCHA, in conjunction with the Youth Committee has created a Hall of Fame application form. Applications are due no later than April 1st.
