A number of ‘travelling’ trophies are awarded at National exhibitions in various categories. The recipient’s name is engraved on the trophy which is held by the recipient until a short period before the next National exhibition when it is returned for presentation to the next successful exhibitor – hence the term ‘travelling’ award. Most of these trophies are intended to encourage novice exhibitors who otherwise may not receive due recognition for their achievement.
