Where does your community stand?
What are Paw Points?
Paw Points are an award system used to encourage halls to show hall, community and school pride. Paw points can be awarded for things like putting on programs, writing Of the Month (OTMs) awards, and attending RHA meetings. Ultimately these paw points lead to a community winning the Community of the Week award, which is a beautiful COW (Community Of the Week) shaped chalkboard for the hall to display at their front desk. So keep on recognizing and doing great things in your community to get more Paw Points.
