The COKC offers TWO $1000 awards annually

Congratulations to our two 2018 Youth Award winners, Moira McGroarty, Junior Division, and Taylor del Duca, Senior Division. These two outstanding students were active with dogs and excelled in their school and communities. Congratulations!
COKC YOUTH AWARDS
The COKC will advertise and support TWO Youth Awards annually--there are now two divisions: age 9-16 (the age of the entrant
as of December 31 determines the category they will enter) and 17-21 to be granted to a youth under the age of 21, to be awarded for achievements at AKC events, school GPA, and community involvement. Qualifications for eligibility:
1.) Competition in AKC sanctioned events, i.e., conformation, obedience, agility, tracking, or any other AKC accepted event.
2.) The youth must be between the ages of 9 and 21 years of age (note two age divisions, above). The youth may live in any part of the United States.
3.) Submission of a 300-400 word essay on your involvement in dog competition, your school and GPA, and community.
On a cover page, include your name, age, address, city, state, zip code and telephone number with area code. Your name should appear at the top of each page.
Essays should be mailed to: Central Ohio Kennel Club
c/o Jon M Green
PO Box 2126
Westerville OH 43086-2126
It is also permissible to transmit the essay by electronic means (e.g., e-mail) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions by e-mail are subject to the same rules and deadlines as mail entries, meaning a cover page clearly identifying the applicant, along with a return address, telephone number, and return e-mail if appropriate, and must provide the same information as that required for a mailed entry. It is suggested youth award essay submissions be transmitted requesting a “read” receipt.
4.) The awards will be presented before group judging at the COKC Spring show, Columbus, Ohio. (This show is usually held in April.)
5.) All entries must be received by December 31, 2018. The winner will be announced in January 2019.
We look forward to receiving your entry!
