divisions receive 10 show rosettes, now with the New Color Melanin as
a third division, 15 show rosettes are received. Rosettes are given
to the four "Best Lipochrome", four "Best Melanins" and now with the
new division, four "Best New Color" colorbred canaries, all divisions
come with "Novice" rosettes.
Club Affiliations are $75.00 for
two divisions and $100.00 for all 3 divisions including score pads.

Points are accumulated at all
exhibitions that "affiliate" with the NCA. These points are
calculated and the exhibitor with the most points for the year is
awarded "Breeder of theYear" status. Points are awarded as follows:
500 points for 1st place, 400 2nd, 300 3rd, 200 4th. This is a total
of 1400 points for the Lipochrome Canary Division, 1400 points for the
Melanin Canary, and 1400 points for the New Color Melanin Canary. If your local
club has all 3 divisions, there are a total of 4200 points per
exhibition. Any exhibitor receiving 1000 points receives the NCA "Master Breeder" Award
Colorbred canaries that receive 800
plus points are recognized. As a result, the bird now qualifies for
an NCA "Champion" Award Certificate.
