While winners and runners-up receive cash awards, co-workers of the finalists will also share in the celebration as they, too, receive a monetary payout. Please go the tiea.org homepage for the breakdown of the cash prizes.
All-expense paid trip for two to Kentucky!
All finalists get to bring a “plus one” with them on their all-expense paid trip to the Thoroughbred capital of the world in Lexington. Flights, hotels, transportation and meals are all included!
Tour and stallion show at a major Kentucky farm!
The beautiful horse farms in and around Lexington graciously open their doors for the TIEA. Each year, we are able to take finalists and their friends and family to tour one of these amazing facilities and also see some of the nation’s top stallions.
