Winners will be announced in the next following ASNOA Advantage E-Newsletter after the contest closing. Scholarship recipients will be contacted directly for travel details the week following the contest closing. Lodging will be arranged and covered by ASNOA. Travel expenses are paid on a reimbursement basis. Please turn in receipts using this form. Once the form is received, the scholarship recipient will see the reimbursement amount on the agency's next ASNOA monthly statement. 

If the scholarship recipient cannot make the event, the scholarship will be provided to the runner up. If you win one scholarship you cannot be eligible for another.

To be eligible, the Affiliate must be registered for the Annual ASNOA Sales Conference & Trade Show and not have any outstanding balances owed to ASNOA.

Only ASNOA Affiliates (agencies) are eligible; essentially, the Agency is awarded the scholarship and the Agency can determine the individual to utilize the scholarship. All Partner Agencies are excluded. Winners will be recognized during event, on and across ASNOA social media.

Policy Contest

May 2021 Contest

From May 1 to May 31, 2021, the agency that writes the most "new personal lines policies" will win a trip to the ASNOA Connect conference. Renewals do not count towards this scholarship. Our goal is to encourage new business production in your agency, and a great tip we have is to reach out to your current client base for referrals and recommendations! If you're looking for inspiration, the ASNOA Marketing Plan Workshop offers ideas on how to find and generate new leads.

Policy Contest

June 2021 Contest

The focus of June's scholarship is rounding out your accounts. The winner must have the most cross-sold policies within this 30-day span. To give yourself an advantage over the competition, we recommend joining Live with Laura: Cross-selling session featuring Allegiance's Personal Lines Account Executive, Holly Linder. Linder will unveil her marketing secrets to help you cross-sell and upsell current customers.

for 2022

Start earning even bigger scholarships now for next year's event! 

This year, more than ever, we want to take time to celebrate each other and our successes. We want to develop new ways to recognize your hard work and honor your accomplishments. One way is through larger, annual scholarships.

Annual scholarships will be awarded based on your performance for the previous year, so that means the business you write right now will count for our 2022 event. So get writing! The race has already begun!! These scholarships will include round trip airfare (up to $500), travel to and from the hotel and airport, three (3) nights stay at the hotel (one room per winner), and cash towards food and drink at the resort. Scholarship winners will be celebrated in our ASNOA Advantage e-newsletter,, across ASNOA social media, as well as recognized with the highest honor at ASNOA's Honorary Dinner.

  • Rockstar Rookie

    This Rookie of the Year Scholarship will be awarded to a new Affiliate that shows the greatest success. Our Rockstar Rookie will be the agent with the most revenue generated overall, from your first policy issuance through nine (9) months. If you joined ASNOA after March, your Rookie year will count for the following year.

  • Agent of the Year

    This scholarship will go to the top earner (most revenue generated overall) through the calendar year, January 1 through December 31, 2021.

  • Growth Monster

    The Growth Monster Scholarship will go to the agent with the highest overall percent increase in revenue generated year-over-year. (The previous year will need to have 12 months of production.)

  • Agency of the Year

    ASNOA believes recognition should be more than total revenue earned or policies issued. As a result, we want to honor an agency that has done something remarkable, whether it is through impactful community outreach, a highly successful fundraiser, implementing innovative technology, or inventing new, efficient operating procedures that can be used by other agency owners to propel their businesses forward. We want to honor you. This scholarship will be based on nominations submitted by your peers. Click the button below to learn more about the nomination and selection process.
