Trophy Sponsorship

Trophy Sponsorship

Sponsoring a trophy at the National Specialty is a wonderful way of acknowledging the importance of the event and a sentimental way of remembering a special dog or person who has passed.  

Acknowledgements

Trophy Sponsorship and any dedications will be listed in the catalog provided it is received prior to the catalog publication deadline.  Trophy sponsorship includes any associated rosettes and ribbons.

Unawarded Trophies

At the time of purchase, you must indicate if you would like any specific action taken if the trophy is not awarded as initially designated. Any costs incurred as a result of alternative action (ex: shipping fees), will be the sponsor's responsbility. Any unawarded trophies without an alternative action will be auctioned at the banquet with the proceeds benefitting RFI, Health, and Juniors equally.

Out of Stock

Sponsorship is on a first come first served basis. For offline orders, an award is not considered sponsored until payment is received.

A trophy has already been sponsored if the "Add to Cart" button is not displayed or it is marked as “Sold”.   A trophy will be held in your cart for 60 minutes, however, it is not considered sponsored until you complete the checkout process. If an item disappears from your cart, it was sponsored after the 60 minute hold. Availability is automatically updated.

  • AKC Rules

    Trophies may only be offered in memory of deceased dogs, in memory of deceased persons, or in honor of a person who is no longer an active breeder or exhibitor.

  • Note

    The MCOA reserves the right to exchange the listed trophy for one of equal or greater value.
