NRHyA Welcome Cinch as the New Title Sponsor of the Speaking Contest

The National Reining Horse Youth Association (NRHyA) welcomes Cinch as the new title sponsor to the NRHyA Speaking Contest held annually at the NRHA Derby.

Formed in 2011, the speaking contest allows youth members an opportunity to polish and perfect their public speaking skills while competing for over $3,000 in scholarships and prizes. The contest is split into two age groups, and contestants can compete in their choice of the following divisions: Prepared Public Speaking, Community Service Presentation, and Delivering A: General.

We are excited to extend our partnership to support those youth making an active effort to grow their communication skills,Said Megan Scales, Social Media & Sponsorship Manager at Miller International.

When asked about the new sponsorship, Hayley Eberle, NRHA Manager of Marketing & Outreach, had this to say, “We believe that the youth are an important part of NRHA and the equestrian community as a whole. NRHA and NRHyA want to create not only good horsemen and women, but strong, well-spoken representatives that have the life skills to be productive members of society. Dedicated Corporate Partners like Cinch who see the value of our youth and partner with us on life skill building opportunities such as the speaking contest are invaluable, and we sincerely appreciate their support.”
