Community Achievement Award

Community Achievement Award Honorees

The Public Education and Government Relations Division 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.
