Another idea could be to give out trophies to the top 5 in each class, and certificates to the next 5. Or give out trophies to the top 3 in each class, and certificates to the next 7. And give trophies for the B.O.S in each class, and certificates to the best male, female, pup, as well as certificate to the second best male, female, and pup in each class.
Then you are still helping to cut cost; as well as giving opportunity for trophies to be given out at club hunts, and for newbies, as well as old timers alike to get a piece of hardware from time to time.
You could even do this for half the hunts during the year, and certificates the other half. You still help cut cost, as well as offer hardware.
Plus the other suggestions that have been mentioned, as well as those not yet mentioned.
