NWCC oversees one of the most coveted year end award programs for APHA exhibitors in the Pacific Northwest. To be eligible for NWCC year end awards, an exhibitor must be a current member of an NWCC member club and complete an NWCC declaration form for each horse prior to their first show. (Declaration forms for 2022 will be available in February 2022.) Show secretaries are responsible for sending show results to the NWCC points keeper for tabulation of year end awards points. A complete list of rules is available on this website.
All APHA approved classes offered at NWCC approved shows are eligible as year end high point and reserve high point awards, providing a minimum of 25 NWCC points are earned in that class (with the exception of weanling halter and leadline).
Funding for NWCC year end awards is provided by a $1 per judge per class levy which is collected by the show and forwarded to the NWCC treasurer. The money is distributed as follows: 70% to year-end awards, 10% to the points keeper and 20% to APHA national directors and alternates who attend the APHA convention and meet requirements for reimbursement.
