NEW YORK—In response to overwhelming feedback received from groomers across the country, Macfadden Communications Group has brought two historic categories back to the 2011 Crystal Grooming Awards program:
The Congeniality Award
This category pays tribute to the individual who has demonstrated outstanding sportsmanship, fellowship and camaraderie during the past 12-month period.
The David G. Salzberg Award for Outstanding Contributions by an Individual or Organization
This category is specifically designed to honor the individual or organization that has contributed most significantly to the advancement of the grooming industry through personal service or research during the past 12-month period.
“We originally removed the congeniality and David G. Salzberg awards to make room for new categories such as Retail Grooming Salon of the Year and Mobile Groomer of the Year,” said Grooming Business publisher Craig Rexford. “However, we could not ignore the many letters we received from concerned groomers who said that these categories were an essential part of the Crystal Grooming Awards program.”
The Crystal Grooming Awards were founded by Cardinal Laboratories president Tony DeVos in 1988 to “celebrate the achievements of industry leaders, and inspire a greater sense of sharing and cooperation among grooming professionals.
