This is a non-competitive award and ALL CWCCA Junior members (Juniors) are eligible for a Junior Assistance Grant (JAG).
Who may qualify: Any Junior (under 18 years of age) who meets the qualifications for that specific event. A Junior must be a CWCCA member (either through a Junior membership or as part of a Household membership) for the entire qualification period, and must qualify with a Cardigan Welsh Corgi. A Junior must enter the event with a Cardigan Welsh Corgi. Juniors must have been under 18 years of age at the time of the qualifying wins. (note: if the Junior turns 18 after qualifying, he or she may still receive the grant).
Events that JAG will support:
- Junior Showmanship at the AKC National Championship.
- Westminster Junior Showmanship
- AKC Juniors Classic (obedience and rally) at the National Championship.
- AKC Junior Agility Competition at the National Championship.
- Annual AKC Performance and Companion Invitationals (held at various times during the year)
There will be ONE grant per junior in a 12 month period, however the Committee has the discretion to award more than one grant per year provided the funds are available. Juniors may receive a grant in successive years, as long as qualifications are met each year.
Juniors should submit a grant form (available on website) as soon as they know they have met qualifications, at least two weeks prior to event.
Juniors must write up an article for the Bulletin after their event, describing their experiences and how the grant has helped them. Juniors are also asked to submit a list of expenses they have incurred for their event (receipts are not required). This will help the JAG committee plan for future grants. Junior must provide this no later than 90 days after participation in their event. Juniors are responsible for observing time frame.
After the Junior has participated and submitted their article, check will be issued from the CWCCA to the Junior.
Grant amounts are dependent on donations and as a result may change year to year. The minimum grant will be $200, or more provided funds are available.
JAG will be funded by donations. The JAG committee may also run fundraisers at various times throughout the year if necessary with approval of the Board.
The Board may approve additional AKC events in future years at the recommendation of the JAG committee. This will be posted on the CWCCA website.
