Above and Beyond Volunteer Awards

For those volunteers who truly go “above and beyond” to support VADA/Nova activities, the organization has special volunteer awards.

Award Levels

There are three award levels:

  • Prix St. Georges:  2 days of volunteer time:
  • Intermediaire:  2.5-4.5 days of volunteer time;
  • Grand Prix:  5 or more days of volunteer time


Hours are cumulative within a given calendar year, and will not carry over from one year to the next.  Hours may be earned at any VADA/Nova activity (e.g., VADA/Nova schooling shows, licensed shows, clinics or other
designated activities).  Hours are tracked by the organization.

Volunteer time for above and beyond awards is  credited to the volunteer who earned the time. Hours cannot be shared or transferred to another.


In the past, volunteer awards were the same for everyone at each level.  But starting in 2018, volunteers will be able to choose their award from the VADA/Nova logo shop!  All awards will be given out at the VADA/Nova Annual Awards banquet.  The logo shop will be open from about October 1 through November 15.  Above and beyond volunteers will be notified once the logo shop is open and detailed instructions on how to  order will be included in the notification.

Prix St. George volunteers may choose a Prix St. George level gift.

Intermediare volunteers may choose an Intermediare level or Prix St. George level gift.

Grand Prix volunteers may choose a Grand Prix or Intermediare or Prix St. George level gift.
