Horizon Award Reminder

Vicki Rand, Editor

The United Kennel Club and COONHOUND BLOODLINES established the Horizon Award in 2002 to recognize the outstanding youth of today and encourage them to maintain the legacy of the UKC Coonhound sports into the 21st Century.

Seven UKC/COONHOUND BLOODLINES Horizon Awards are presented annually to a young sportsperson chosen by each of the seven UKC Chartered National Coonhound Associations:

American Black & Tan Coonhound Association

American Leopard Breeders Association

Bluetick Breeders of America

United English Breeders & Fanciers Association

National Plott Hound Association

National Redbone Coonhound Association

Treeing Walker Breeders & Fanciers Association

The seven chartered National Coonhound Associations must choose a worthy young person to be awarded the 2015 Horizon Award. Their choices are due no later than May 3, 2015.

The seven young people who are chosen are traditionally featured in each Youth Issue (September) of COONHOUND BLOODLINES. In addition, each recipient receives $100, a plaque, and a complimentary one-year subscription to COONHOUND BLOODLINES.


The following guidelines are recommended to be used as a basis for their selection - in addition to consistently exhibiting sportsman-like behavior in hunts, bench shows, association events and programs, the recipient must be no more than 18 years of age (at the time they are chosen), and must be currently enrolled in school.

Once they have made their choice for the Horizon Award, the National Associations are to supply the following information, on official association letterhead, to Vicki Rand, COONHOUND BLOODLINES, 100 E Kilgore Rd, Kalamazoo MI 49002-5584, vrand@ukcdogs.com.

• their full name (first, middle, last)

• their complete address, including street address, city, state and zip code

• their phone number and e-mail address

• their date of birth

• the names of their parents or guardians
