PCA National Awards

Each year at Parade, PCA's national awards are presented to deserving members and Regions. Below is a complete history of all currently active national PCA awards.



The Awards Chair, within the Parade Committee, is responsible to the Club and the PCA Executive Council (EC) for the solicitation, data compilation, and presentation to the EC of all the nominations for:

The Awards Chair assists the PCA Newsletter and Website Chairs in procuring and presenting the trophies for the Paul Heinmiller Trophy (Best Overall Newsletter), the National Newsletter Contest trophies, The Best Overall Website Trophy and the National Website Contest trophies. The Awards Chair assists the Membership Chair in procuring and presenting the awards for Actual Growth and Factored Growth and the Zone Representatives in procuring and presenting The Zone Representative Award.

Throughout the year, the Awards Chair will provide information to all Region Presidents and Zone Representatives about the awards. About January 1st of each year, the Awards Chair will solicit nominations from the Region Presidents and Zone Representatives for The Ferry Porsche “Region of the Year”, The Lazar-Blanchard Memorial “Enthusiast of the Year,” The Porsche (PCA) Family of the Year and the PCA Public Service awards. The solicitation encourages Presidents to nominate and submit entries for these four national honors and provides guidelines for the nominations. The solicitation also provides a due date for submission of nominations, normally March 1st. See Nomination Guidelines.

After the nominations are received, the Awards Chair formats the nominations so that each competes with one another on an impartial basis. The goal is to submit nominations to the EC for their review by May 1st, but not later than June 1st. The Award Chair participates with the EC to determine the recipients of the award. During the discussions, the Awards Chair provides additional information and may make recommendations, if requested, but does not have a vote to determine the recipients.

The Awards Chair is also responsible for coordinating with PCA National Headquarters to arrange for transportation of all permanent (perpetual) national award trophies to the Parade site. The perpetual trophies are those original trophies for the various National and Parade awards that are presented to the recipients. The recipients previously retained the perpetual awards and returned them to PCA each year for refurbishing and engraving, prior to the next Parade. The recipients were also awarded a “keeper” trophy, usually a plaque or a small trophy. The EC implemented a new policy in 2011 where perpetual trophies would no longer be retained by the recipients, but are returned to PCA National Headquarters immediately after Parade. (The policy was implemented in large part, since it was often complicated and expensive to return the trophies to National Headquarters.) The EC policy change also included presentation of a new “keeper” trophy that is of a size and design commensurate with the respective national award. The Awards Chair is responsible to work with the approved PCA vendor to design and procure these “keeper” trophies.

While at Parade, the Awards Chair compiles the data to determine the winner of The President’s Award (The PCA Region which had the most members traveling the longest distance to Parade) and the Parade Long Distance Award and works closely with the Master of Ceremonies to facilitate presentation of all National and Parade Awards.

During the week of Parade, the Awards Chair also assists the EC and the Parade Emcee in the presentation of all National and Parade awards. The Awards Chair also assists the Trophy Chair as needed, in the organization of all Parade trophies. Those include:

  • The four (4) National Group Concours Trophies
  • The Parade Concours Trophies
  • The Hoffman Rally Trophy
  • The Woolery Navigational Trophy
  • The Parade Autocross trophies (Fastest Time of Day, Men’s & Women’s)
  • The Parade Technical & Historic Quiz Trophies (Highest Scores, Men’s & Women’s)




The Ferry Porsche Trophy was first presented at Parade in 1961 and was sponsored by Porsche AG and the Porsche of America Corporation. The trophy is in memory of Dr. Ferdinand (Ferry) Porsche and PCA now sponsors this award. The trophy is presented to the outstanding PCA Region of the year. The trophy is “In Appreciation of Loyalty to the Porsche Car and the Porsche Idea”. The winning Region demonstrates the highest standards in meeting the objectives and ideals of the Porsche Club of America. Historically, PCA awarded the Ferry Porsche Trophy to one region. In 2010, in an effort to recognize more Regions for their outstanding achievements, the PCA Executive Committee decided to award a First and Second Runner Up for the Ferry Porsche Trophy.

The Glenn Lazar-Harry Blanchard Memorial Trophy was established by the late Bruce "King Carrera" Jennings as an annual award to be presented to the Region member who best exemplifies the spirit and guidelines of PCA. The award is more commonly known as the “Enthusiast of the Year” Award.

Glen Lazar was from Towson, Maryland. He was a very enthusiastic and well-liked driver who raced a Super Speedster with much success in regional and national events during the mid-to late 1950's. Mr. Jennings raced against Mr. Lazar for several years in a Super Speedster and later in Carrera Speedsters. Mr. Lazar died during a pre-race practice session at the National Lime Rock Fourth of July race in 1959 when his car veered off track and rolled four times.

Harry Blanchard was from Greenwich, Connecticut and was the owner of the Blanchard Automotive Corporation. Mr. Blanchard was “dyed in the wool” Porsche enthusiast and racer. In 1959, he won the SCCA National Production Sports Car Championship. Also in 1959, he drove an RSK to 8th place in the first and only Formula One Grand Prix at Sebring. He died in Argentina in 1960 when the RSK he was driving hit a concrete abutment.

Mr. Jennings said “Glenn Lazar and Harry Blanchard were two Porsche enthusiasts and racers who died at the wheel of their Porsches, doing what they loved best – racing.” Mr. Jennings founded the award to honor two of the finest dedicated sportsmen and Porsche production sports car racing drivers.

The recipient is a true “Porsche Enthusiast” and an outstanding member of PCA. The recipient is an exemplary participant in Region activities and shows initiative in support and organization of ongoing activities and the development of new activities. Any active member of the Porsche Club of America is eligible for this award, with the exception of any person serving in a position on the PCA National Staff during the award year.

Since PCA was formed in 1955, Regions have prioritized community service and charitable contributions. In 2002, PCA decided to recognize the unique and diverse programs implemented by Regions throughout PCA in support of public service.

The PCA Public Service Awards recognizes the Regions that have conducted the most outstanding charity or community service event or events during the year. The winning Regions demonstrate the highest standards in meeting the objectives and ideals of the Porsche Club of America in providing service and support to charities and the community. Due to the importance of public service to PCA and the number of PCA Regions involved in Public Service, it was decided to present multiple awards. Awards are presented for first, second and third place and honorable mention. The award includes a trophy and cash award.

The Paul Heinmiller Memorial Trophy is awarded to the Region newsletter judged to be the most outstanding for the year. The award was donated in 1970 by the Porsche Audi Division of Volkswagen of America. Mr. Heinmiller was a past National Vice President, but his dedication and work as the editor of PANORAMA are the basis for this award. PANORAMA was a labor of love for Mr. Heinmiller and the culmination of untold hours of inadequately compensated work and many dollars of unreimbursed, personal expense. Under Mr. Heinmiller’s leadership, PANORAMA became a professionally executed publication both in physical lay-out and graphic art, as well as in refinement of its contents. Part of Mr. Heinmiller’s genius was his ability to accomplish these things without sacrificing PANO’s unique appeal as a magazine compiled of the contributions of, and dedicated to the interests of, a membership of largely amateur automotive enthusiasts. Almost every Region has members who belong to PCA because of PANORAMA and who continue to renew their memberships to receive what has become the finest single-marque, club-sponsored publication in the world. The real truth is that Mr. Heinmiller loved PANORAMA and loved being its Editor. There may be others within PCA with many of his special skills, but it's not likely that anyone will ever match Mr. Heinmiller’s special dedication to PANORAMA.

For the PCA Newsletter Contest, Regions compete in one of five classes, based on Region membership as of December 31st of the competition year. Basing the classes on Region membership is intended to ensure that Regions competing for the five separate class awards have reasonably equal resources. The Heinmiller Award does not duplicate any of the class awards. A group of judges, who are PCA members with distinguished writing, editing and design experience, evaluate each newsletter submitted and assign a score for each of the categories. In addition, points are given for the number of issues published by the Region during the year.

Wendy Shoffit is the National Newsletter Chair and may be reached for additional information at Wendy@shoffit.com.

Annually, PCA conducts the National Website Contest in which Region and Zone websites are judged for editorial excellence, design effectiveness, user friendliness, up-to-date content, and their usefulness to the Region and its members. As a result of the outstanding content and technical advances in past submissions, PCA decided to create an award for the Best Overall Region Website. The award will be first presented at Parade in 2012. The Best Overall Region Website Award is presented to the Region with highest overall score, regardless of class. The award will not duplicate any National Website Award Class winners. Zone websites are not eligible for this award. The Award serves to demonstrate that the real value of any Region Website is to effectively serve Region Members. The Award also demonstrates the fluidity and dynamics of web based communications and the ability of the Regions to adapt new technologies to meet the expectation of their users.

Don Roof is the National Website Chair and may be reached for additional information at Don Roof pcawebcoordinator@gmail.com

In 1990, PCA implemented a campaign to increase membership. The campaign was successful and almost 900 new members were enrolled. Based on this success, in 1991 PCA established a National Membership Competition to continue to stimulate growth. The award was first presented at Parade in 1992. Originally the recipient of the award was determined by a formula that equalized each Region’s growth, regardless of size. In 1998, PCA added a second category to recognize the Region with the highest net growth. Today the awards are known as Greatest Factored Growth and Greatest Actual Growth. The same Region cannot receive both awards. The recipients receive both a trophy and cash payment from PCA.

The competition runs from January 1 – December 31 of each year. A Region must be have been chartered by December 31 of the preceding year to be eligible for the award. New member applications and applications for renewal must be received at the National Office by close of business on December 31 of each year.

If a Region is no longer chartered during the competition year, the beginning membership total of the Region that is no longer chartered will be added to membership total of the Region to which those members were transferred. If a Region is downsized because a new Region is created, the membership total of the downsized Region is reduced by the number of members transferred to the new Region when the new Region is chartered.

The National Membership Competition is administered by the PCA National Membership Committee and does not require a nomination from the Regions. Sean Reardon is the National Membership Chair and can be contacted at reardon911@gmail.com for more information about the National Membership Competition.
