Here are the rules (and explanations) for eligibility and how to calculate points for individual awards: Awards Rules and Explanations. Note that for 2022 awards ONLY, the PVSSC Board voted to waive one of the two required meetings because we had so few meetings last year. So if you want to apply for an award and could only attend one meeting last year, go ahead and apply!
To be eligible for an award, the dog must be owned by a PVSSC member in good standing (dues are paid on time) who has attended at least 1 PVSSC meeting or event (for the year 2022 only) during the awards calendar year. Co-owned dogs must have resided the majority of the awards calendar year (that is, 51%) with the PVSSC member submitting the request for the award.
Please send completed and signed application forms by USPS mail (postmarked no later than February 1) to the appropriate person listed below (addresses in rules document):
