Accolades

The NFRS Accolades scheme began in 2014, and is a way of recognising and rewarding breeders who are actively breeding and/or exhibiting rats which excel at shows, with different awards to celebrate success in both the pet and varieties sections.

As accolades are awarded for only a year at a time; they provide the breeder with an opportunity for continual achievement, and others with a way to identify those breeders who are currently striving to breed rats that meet the NFRS standards.

The currently awarded accolades are:

  • Varieties exhibitor bronze: Has won 1st in a breed class at 4 separate NFRS affiliated shows.
  • Pet exhibitor bronze: Has placed 1st-4th in a pet class at 4 separate NFRS affiliated shows.
  • Varieties exhibitor silver: Has been awarded a star on a rat who has placed in an all-age section challenge at two separate NFRS affiliated shows.
  • Pet exhibitor silver: Has won a pet class at 2 separate NFRS affiliated shows
  • Varieties exhibitor gold: Has placed 1-4 in the varieties Supreme Challenge at two separate NFRS affiliated star shows.
  • Pet exhibitor gold: Has placed 1-4 in the supreme pet challenge at two separate NFRS affiliated shows.
  • Champion breeder: Has bred a varieties champion.
