The United Kennel Club is pleased to announce the Next Generation Spotlight Series. This series has been established to ensure, promote, highlight, and recognize the future of the sport. With several hundred UKC licensed youth events around the country each year, the opportunities for youth today are endless. The Spotlight Series has been a long time coming and will now shed a light on the Next Generation of our sport.

A special thanks to Ray Conrad, owner of Bright Eyes Light Company and presenting sponsor of the Next Generation Spotlight Series, for his continued support of UKCs youth programs.

Eligibility

Any youth between the ages of 5 and 17 years of age may compete and earn Spotlight Points. Any youth less than 5 years of age or any youth who has reached his or her 18th birthday is not eligible to participate in a UKC Licensed Youth Event and will not be eligible to earn Spotlight Points.

Junior and Senior Divisions

Youth from the age of 5 to 12 will have their points tabulated in the Junior Division. Youth from the age of 13 to 17 will have their points tabulated in the Senior Division. Any youth reaching their 13th birthday on or before May 31st during the year points are being calculated will have their points tabulated in the Senior Division. Any youth reaching their 18th birthday, although no longer eligible to compete and earn points, will retain any points earned previously and be eligible for year-end honors.

Points Awarded

Points will be calculated starting on June 1 of each year and end on May 31 of the following year. Ten points will be awarded to each youth handler who placed first through tenth at any UKC Licensed Youth Only Nite Hunt. The youth must have a total score of plus points in order to be eligible for placement.

Ten points will be awarded to each youth handler winning one of the six categories at any UKC Licensed Youth Only Bench Show. Those categories include Best of Show Male, Best of Show Female, Champion Male, Champion Female, Grand Champion Male, and Grand Champion Female. Points are not awarded for Class or Best of Breed wins, except for UKC Youth Nationals where points are awarded in each age class. Effective June 1, 2018, a youth may be credited Spotlight Series points for no more than two category wins at the same show; however, there is no limit to the number of dogs that may be entered and shown by a youth in the same show. A youth may earn Spotlight Points in any UKC Licensed Youth Only event and in any state.

Bonus Points Events

Points will be doubled (20) at any UKC Licensed State Youth Championship. There will not be more than one Youth State Championship per state that is a Double Points Event. In the event there is more than one event in any given state advertised as a Youth State Championship, the Upcoming Event listing will denote the State Youth Championship that is approved as a Double Points Event.

Additionally, the UKC Youth Nationals, held in July each year, will be a Double Points Event. No other events such as Breed Association, YEP Events, or otherwise will be Double Points Events. Bonus Points Events were established to encourage youth to support their state youth program. A tentative list of Double Points Events are listed on the UKC website.

Recording Spotlight Series Points

There will be a separate form included in each Youth Event Packet. Club officials shall record the name and age of each youth that earned points at the event. That form will include information for both the Bench Show and Nite Hunt winners.

Notice to Youth Handlers - Any youth that earned points at the event shall make it their responsibility to give the Bench Show Judge or the Master of Hounds their information before they leave the club that day. Otherwise, UKC or the club is not responsible, and any points earned may not be awarded. This is part of being a responsible youth if you want your points to count in the standings.

Spotlight Series Standings

A list of the current standings will be posted monthly on the UKC website and Coonhound Bloodlines. Monthly standings are based on event reports processed on or before the date of the update. Points will be tabulated separately for Nite Hunts and Bench Shows and by Junior and Senior Divisions.

Spotlight Series Winners

Each year the winners of each division will be recognized on Saturday at the UKC Youth Nationals. In addition to the recognition, award, and prestige of being a winner in the Spotlight Series, Bright Eyes will present the winner with a special signature Spotlight Series hunting light denoting the winners honorable achievement.

Tie-Breakers

Any ties will be broken as follows:

  1. Most First Place Nite Hunt Event Wins. / Most Category Wins.
  2. Most events where points were earned.
  3. The youth who earned their total amount of points first.
