From the NHC handbook:

14. Each affiliated club shall hold two NHC Diploma Classes each year (one Syrian, one Dwarf), to be judged by NHC judges; these shall be duplicate classes for any shade or variety. The entry fee will be as set by the Council, the prizes being cards only, and points shall be awarded to winning exhibitors' clubs as follows: 7 points for 1st, 6 points for 2nd and so on down to 1 point for Commended. All entry fees for this class shall be paid to the Council and shall be received by the Council Treasurer within 14 days of the date of the show.
When I last asked someone about it, they said it was to make sure that each club had at least one show for Syrians and dwarfs judged by an NHC judge (rather than a club judge).
