Eligibility For Winning Budgerigar Society Certificates
Exhibitors are reminded that only current BS Members exhibiting birds wearing an official ring purchased from the Budgerigar Society through the Society Administrator can be awarded Certificates of Merit or Challenge Certificates.
After the section specials have been judged. Certificates of Merit should be awarded to the Best Novice Any Age and Young Bird and the Best Junior Any Age and Young Bird which have not won a Challenge Certificate at the show.
Upon completion of judging, it will be necessary to ensure that the proposed certificate winners are wearing an official ring purchased from the Budgerigar Society through the Society Administrator. If a proposed certificate winner is not wearing such official ring or belongs to a person who is not a member of or who has not nominated B.S. then the next best eligible exhibit in that colour should be considered for the certificate. Once a bird has been given an award of Best in its Colour or a B.S. Challenge Certificate, it cannot thereafter be beaten by a bird of its colour for any other B.S. award.
