This is not quite what you would call a tip or hint, but this might help someone else going through what I am.
Recently, I had to move far away from my four children and eleven grandchildren due to my medical illnesses. To help me remember them, the best was to put up a few small things I have that belong to each of my amazing grandchildren and the plaque you see. I purchased it three Christmases ago, one for each of my kids' families and one for mine. This I treasure.
"God Bless" anyone who has family living away from you. You have my blessings. If anyone here has any good ideas for me, please post them. Thank you.
You see the result. I've had a lot of compliments on it. I also have a display of shells and sand dollars done in the same way. To keep dust out of the display, I placed a clean medium size cup lid (from a McDonalds cup) at the top of the bowl. I put the lid upside and it fits nicely in the neck of the bowl.
There are a lot of attractive ways of displaying unusual items. Just use your imagination.

We have a few show dogs and I am decorating the spare bedroom (dog room) to put up our dog pictures, rewards and memorabilia. Any ideas on how to decorate, paint, etc?

I saw this the other day on tv and though you would probably have to go larger, I think this method would showcase the awards fantastic. They used a contrasting color from opposite walls in a room to paint color blocks on the opposing walls. Then they took white molding to make a frame around the painted block of color, and then put the couple's artwork inside. It really makes it pop and stand out and it looks great! I think this would work for your room. You'll have to watch all the way to end to see the results, but check out this video on Rachael Ray's website.
