Register of Merit Awards
The BTCA Register of Merit program was developed to honor Border Terrier sires and dams that have produced a specific number of champion offspring. In order to receive an ROM, a BTCA member must submit an application that verifies the record of the get as well as the health clearances for the dog that is being submitted. At the annual Awards Banquet the owner of the ROM recipient is given an engraved medallion as well as a certificate in recognition of the achievement.

AKC Outstanding Sportsman Award
As stated by AKC: In the American Kennel Club’s ongoing efforts to recognize and celebrate its volunteer club members, the AKC Outstanding Sportsmanship Award program was established in 2006 to provide each member club with an AKC Medallion to award to one of its own on a yearly basis.
This award honors those individuals who deserve special recognition that have made a difference in the sport of purebred dogs, embodied the AKC Code of Sportsmanship, and have been an active and valued member of an AKC member club.
In 2013, the NBTC donated a commemorative statue designed by Damara Bolte in memory of Bob Naun to be called The Bob Naun Memorial AKC Outstanding Sportsmanship Award.
The NBTC raised most of the funds for the statue and shipping container with the balance being paid for by the BTCA.
The recipients of The AKC Outstanding Sportsmanship Award each year receive a commemorative Bob Naun Memorial plate along with the framed AKC Medallion.
