Where does FWQ prize money come from?

As a nonprofit organization with limited monetary resources and a small operating budget, the IFSA does not provide prize money for IFSA/FWQ events. The provision of prize money is solely the responsibility of the Event Organizer. Event Organizers should strive to partner with sponsors or organizations who may be willing to contribute to a cash purse.

At the minimum, awards should be provided to the top 3 competitors in each division, though the IFSA encourages providing awards for the top 5 riders.
A cash prize is required at FWQ 4* events. Cash prizing is not a requirement for Event Organizers hosting FWQ 2* or 3* events.
