The Hubbard Award

The prestigious Hubbard Award is an annual award earned by an SOTC member in good standing who trained his or her dog at SOTC for an AKC obedience title. This award program was established in 1980 by Noreen Hubbard in memory of her husband, Will. Will and Noreen raised, trained and showed dogs and actively supported SOTC. Noreen was benefactor and managed the Award until her death in 1999. SOTC voted to perpetuate and fund the award and Fran Lindstrom now administers it.

There is a point formula used based upon the scores and placements earned for the three legs toward specific AKC obedience titles. All legs for one title must be earned between December 1 and November 30. The Award consists of the winner's name added to the Hubbard Award plaque which is displayed at the SOTC building, with a small individual trophy for the winner, and $50.00.

The absolute deadline is the last week in November and the award is presented at the annual holiday awards dinner in December.

One frequently asked question relates to scores and placements from obedience trials by other registries, i.e., United Kennel Club (UKC), Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA) or World Wide Kennel Club (WWKC), etc. Are they eligible? Answer: No. As established by Noreen, the Hubbard Award uses only the original regular AKC obedience titles, Companion Dog (CD), Companion Dog Excellent (CDX) and Utility Dog (UD).
