Again and again we see that some organizers, of club tournaments but also of big events, try to make your award ceremonies without cups and trophies. This seems to be an alternative at first glance, but you should take a closer look.
What should cups, trophies and other awards actually aim at
This question is the decisive question for any club or organiser. A trophy is not just an object to be presented and at this moment the person to be honoured shines in splendour. No, a trophy is a lot more than that. It is an award that captures memories of a victory and a great event.
Vouchers, books or other articles are not an alternative
Those responsible for an event often think about giving the winners a pizza voucher, a cash prize, T-shirts or even towels (seen at major events) as an alternative. But what happens to these products? What is the reminder value of these articles?
The pizza voucher is usually redeemed on the same day as it is from a local pizzeria. The reminder value is almost non-existent here.
- A cash prize is very nice but has no reminder value
- A T-shirt is a way to create a short reminder for the participants. But when worn more often, it washes away or grows out of size. Often it is given then after a few years to the old clothes collection.
Towels are almost like T-shirts. But how does an athlete feel who gets a towel after a great performance? Is this an award?
Great memories even by years
Trophies and trophies, on the other hand, very often decorate clubhouses, hobby rooms even living rooms and constantly remind one of his successes. However, cups are often packed in cartons and stowed in the attic after an active sporting career. But even if you unpack them after decades, the precious and beautiful memories are back as if it had been yesterday.
