Tips on Selecting Awards

We can recommend a variety of programs to encourage and reward achievement by students, employees, athletes, volunteers or members.

The Perfect Award

The key to successful recognition is selecting the appropriate kind of award. Ask yourself:

  • Do you want to show gratitude, recognize membership, mark service to an organization, encourage achievement, or reward accomplishment?
  • Do you want to emphasize the activity, contest, or competition?
  • Do you want to create a sense of common belonging, or mark someone for distinction?
  • Do you want to symbolize the achievement?
  • Do you want to establish a stronger identity for your organization, or match the personality of the recipient?

Then you have to decide what kind of item would be most appropriate. It could be a plaque, trophy, pin, desk accessory, or other item. Keep in mind that an appropriate award is:

  • Representative of what was accomplished.
  • Attractive enough to keep in the recipients home or office.
  • Consistent with the purpose and image of the organization presenting it.
  • In line with the organization's budget.
