The Dixie Trace Field Trial Association represents 37 field trial clubs in the Southeastern United States. Several of the member clubs in Georgia and Alabama host youth field trials for which points are calculated for the Award which presents a $1,000 scholarship to the winner and recognizes the Runner-Up. The trials are run to Gundog standards. Youth handlers under the age of 17 are eligible to compete.
Youth Field Trial Alliance hopes that the Dixie Trace FTA Award is an inspiration to other regions of the country to hold similar events and encourage youths to compete in field trials.
