Certificate of Achievement
The GSPCA Juniors Committee will issue a certificate of achievement to GSPCA Junior members who have earned a degree or title on their GSP, achieved a Top 10 ranking in any area of the sport per GSPCA rankings, or who have ranked at all within the calendar year per GSPCA rankings. It is necessary that the Committee be notified of degrees or titles earned.
Competition statistics are currently only kept for junior members competing in Junior Showmanship. Juniors who join or renew their GSPCA membership before March 1st of each year will include their ranking points for that entire year. Juniors who join on or after April 1st of each year will only include their ranking points earned during the time period in which their membership was in force.
GSPCA recognizes that all areas of our sport are important and encourages our juniors to participate in every such area as is possible. The Committee is interested in keeping Junior achievement statistics in all other areas of competition and is working on a method of score obtainment for its Juniors. It is likely that these will become self-reported scores for companion, performance, and field events, with verification of the score and Junior handler/ agent coming from AKC Junior Recognition reports. If you are interested in being counted in such standings, please follow procedure for A
