The OLRCB is aware of the importance of recognizing its members - youth and adult, for their outstanding achievements and service to this organization and other members. Recognition is a significant incentive to achieve even more. Recognizing our members for their achievement and service will inspire themselves and others to continue participating, growing and contributing to the rabbit and cavy hobbies.
The major awards the OLRCB offers are Person of the Year and Hall of Fame.
Youth members are recognized for their participation in OLRCB Royalty Contests held each year in conjunction with the OLRCB State Convention and Show.
Additionally, the OLRCB feels its important to recognize the achievements of our members on the show table as well as other areas that relate to the rabbit and cavy hobbies. Members, club secretaries and club reporters are encouraged to submit photos and information regarding OLRCB member successes to the webmaster.
