Community Achievement Award Honorees


The Communication Department grants this award four times per year to honor exemplary public education and canine legislation efforts.

Honorees receive a certificate of recognition, and their club or federation receives $1,000 to further public education and strengthen canine legislation efforts within their community. Nominations are accepted throughout the entire year and awards are granted once every quarter.
