During the contest, each contestant will walk the pageant runway while our emcee reads the contestant bio. This is prime time for the pups to show off their stuff or do tricks. Our judges will meet each contestant and together determine the winners of each award category, which include Drake Spirit, Family Theme, Best Dressed, Congeniality, Rescue Dog Recognition, Porterhouse People's Choice, Second Runner-Up, Runner-Up, and Most Beautiful Bulldog. It’s up to the judges to decide how each Bulldog best represents these nine awards and both the judging time and the pageant is what they use to judge these categories. The 2019 Most Beautiful Bulldog will serve as the Drake Relays mascot for one year.
