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. Medallions are awarded
solely at the club’s discretion.
