THE SELECT AWARD – Often at a National Specialty the number of quality dogs in competition far exceeds the number of top awards available. The judge must choose only one Best of Breed and one Best of Opposite Sex. The awarding of a Select Rosette acknowledges that the animal was under consideration for Best of Breed or Best of Opposite Sex. The judge is indicating their recognition of an exceptional animal who could, on another day, merit a top award. The American Whippet Club allows for ten Select Awards to be presented in addition to Best of Breed and Best of Opposite Sex. The judge may, at their discretion, award all or none of the rosettes. Receiving a Select Award is indeed a significant honor.
SELECT AWARDS: 10 inch Commemorative Plate and Turquoise and Purple Rosette
JUNIOR SHOWMANSHIP PRIZES
Best Junior Handler: Navajo Horsehair Pottery; Pink & Green Rosette
First Place in Each Class: 8-Inch Commemorative Plate and Rosette.
