Why Case of the Quarter?
Case of the Quarters submissions are a way for our members to receive recognition for the hard work that their K-9 partners do every day. Your submissions are publicized in a national magazine and all USPCA members can read about the professional work that our members are doing. Each Quarter we take submissions and the executive board will review them. A winner is selected and then passed to the national awards committee. Every regional winner is then submitted to the national case of the quarter and a selection is voted on at that level. A national Case of the Quarter is picked four times a year in each category and those are then reviewed for Case of the Year. Having a Nationally recognized case from a Nationally recognized organization is a prestigious honor.
