CSDEA Volunteer Recognition Program

CSDEA is proud to recognize the ongoing efforts and commitment of our volunteers to the organization through our Volunteer Recognition Program.

Report your volunteer hours here!


Upon reaching the designated number of hours, each volunteer will be recognized at the annual CSDEA Awards Banquet & Silent Auction and will receive the corresponding CSDEA pin:

  • 1000 hours - Champion/Gold
  • 750 hours - Reserve/Purple
  • 500 hours - Blue
  • 450 hours - Red
  • 400 hours - Yellow
  • 350 hours - White
  • 300 hours - Pink
  • 250 hours - Green
  • 200 hours - Purple
  • 150 hours - Brown
  • 100 hours - Grey
  • 50 hours - Light Blue


Volunteer hours can be earned at any CSDEA event or through work with a CSDEA Committee or Board of Directors. This includes events directly run by CSDEA, including clinics, tack swaps, banquets, etc., and also competitions that are affiliated with CSDEA. For a list of competitions affiliated with CSDEA, refer to our Omnibus or the CSDEA Affiliated Shows list.

Hours are cumulative and need not be earned in one year’s time.

Recipients must be CSDEA members in good standing.

Deadline: Volunteers must report their hours by November 30th of each year to be recognized at that year’s Awards Banquet. (If you miss the reporting deadline, your hours still count.  They will be recognized at the following year's banquet.)

Program launch: All hours volunteered on or after December 1, 2017 count toward volunteer hours for the recognition program.

Submission: Volunteers must submit their hours via this online form. Hours will be tracked and recipients will be notified upon reaching each designated level.
