Best In Show – Judged as the best rabbit in the rabbit show. BIS may be chosen by comparing all the BOB winners.
Best of Breed – Judged the best rabbit of that breed.
Best Opposite Sex – Judged the best of the opposite sex of the BOB
rabbit. For example, if a doe wins BOB, then the judge will choose the
best buck for the BOS.
Best Of Variety – The rabbit judged best of its variety. “Variety” is the same as “color” in most breeds. Some breeds only come in one color, and BOV does not apply. The Lop breeds are designated in two varieties – solid and broken.
Best Opposite Sex of Variety - Judged the best rabbit of the opposite sex of the BOV rabbit.
An official certificate issued by a Show Secretary, designating a certain win.

A “Leg” may be awarded for First Place in a class, BOB, BOS, BOV, BOSV, BOG, BOSG, or BIS. A rabbit can only get one Leg per show.
A rabbit who has won at least three “Leg” papers (under at least 2
different ARBA judges, and with at least one win as an intermediate or senior), is registered, and has obtained a Grand Champion Certificate, with a Grand Champion number, from ARBA.
