JERSEY NZ AWARDS

JERSEY NZ AWARDS
 
Jersey NZ is pleased to announce the addition of the following trophies and awards following a review by the Board.  These are all existing trophies that have been in abeyance, and in some cases the criteria has been updated to suit modern practice.  Unless stated, these will be presented at the upcoming Awards night at the Annual Conference in Whangarei.  As with all trophies, the actual trophy will remain in the Jersey NZ office, and a certificate including a photo of the trophy will be presented.  Youth award recipients will also receive a mini trophy.
 
Nominations are now called for the West Lynn Trophy for the leading lifetime producer.  Check out the criteria below and phone or e-mail the birth identification of your nominations to the Jersey NZ office by Friday 25 May 2018.  We will then order the Three Generation Pedigree at your expense.
