12 Ideas for Fall Sports Season Honors and Awards

Fall Sports Season Awards

Fall Sports Season Awards

The fall sports season is wrapping up, which means coaches and booster clubs are planning fall season awards ceremonies. If planning an athletes’ awards banquet has fallen on your shoulders this year, here are some ideas for how to honor the standout players and teams at your school.

 

Player Performance Awards

Most sports teams give awards for player performance. Use performance awards to recognize your top achievers and players who have improved the most over the season.

  • MVP: All-Around Player
  • MVP: Offensive Player
  • MVP: Defensive Player
  • Most Improved Player
  • Most Assists
  • Most Goals/Points/Touchdowns
  • Personal Record Achievers
  • School Record Achievers

 

Player Attitude Awards

Coaches know that great teams are built on attitude, not just performance. Recognize the players on your team that contributed positively to your team’s culture and attitude.

  • Team Leader
  • Sportsmanship
  • Best Mental Attitude
  • Most Hustle

 

Team Award

If your awards are part of a school-wide ceremony, get together with your fellow coaches or booster clubs and decide which team has earned the Outstanding Team Award. Use this award to recognize superior performance, most improved performance, or excellent sportsmanship.

 

What to Give as Awards

Now that you have your awards figured out, what do you give your athletes as recognition? Trophies are a traditional giveaway for athlete awards, but there are hundreds of other items you can give away as awards. Here are some of our favorites.

  • Apparel. Give away hoodies, hats, gloves, and scarves for the winter season.
  • Medallions. Students can carry these in their backpacks or keep them in their lockers.
  • Pins. High-school athletes love adding bling to their letterman jackets.
  • Ribbons. Another traditional giveaway that athletes can display in lockers or their bedrooms.
  • Backpack or Gear Bag. Shows off school spirit and is something athletes can use for years.

It’s that time again—time to order year-end awards for your school’s top performers. End-of-year awards banquets are a fun way to recognize your school’s best and brightest. Honor them with a memorable and thoughtful token of their hard work.

 

Academic and School Community Awards Ceremonies

Every year, schools across Minnesota host ceremonies for students who achieved academic excellence and went above and beyond for the school community. Recognize seniors who have earned scholarships and students who have served in student government. Honor students who have earned a spot in the National Honor Society and those who clocked 100 or more hours of volunteer time.

Academic and community awards range from the traditional to the unexpected. Medallions, ribbons, crystal or acrylic awards, trophies, and plaques are always great choices. Consider awarding students with a nice pen and pencil set or a personalized, embossed planner to use in the next school year.

 

Awards for Sports and Music Banquets

Often, schools recognize students for their performance on sports teams and in musical ensembles. Sports and music banquets are often the last time an entire team or band will be together. It gives them a chance to reflect on the past year or season, share goals and successes, and be recognized.

Ribbons and trophies are popular awards for both sports teams and musical ensembles. Think outside the box and consider honoring students with special jackets or sweatshirts. Present them with equipment bags with their names, position or chair, and your school’s mascot.

The end of the school year is an exciting time for students, parents, and staff. Recognize your school’s outstanding students with a special award and ceremony. The experts at Broadway Awards can help you design the perfect award. Contact us to get started today.

It’s Spring Break Season! Time to Think about Awards and Giveaways for Your School’s Reunion Weekend

It’s Spring Break Season! Time to Think about Awards and Giveaways for Your School’s Reunion Weekend

As students finish up coursework and pack their bags for spring break, school alumni relations offices are gearing up for their biggest event of the year: reunion. Welcoming alumni back to campus for a weekend takes a lot of planning. By spring break time, your reunion schedule is set and RSVPs from alums are coming in. It’s time to order the giveaways and awards you’ll hand out.

 

Give ‘em something to remember you by

Reunions are all about reconnecting: reconnecting with classmates, professors, and of course your school. Giving away items with your school logo or mascot helps keep that connection strong even when alumni head back home.

T-shirts and wristbands help alums celebrate the reunion and show school spirit, at least for a year or two after reunion. T-shirts and wristbands can be given away as pre-reunion gifts to get alumni in a celebratory mood. Encourage alums to wear their t-shirts and wristbands at reunion.

Other giveaways make a more lasting impact. Sturdy tote bags and backpacks are usable for years to come. Keychains can be daily reminders of the fun time alums had at reunion, as can water bottles and mugs.

 

Alumni awards and recognition

Reunion is a great to celebrate the successes of your alumni. Ask alumni to nominate and vote for classmates who have made a difference in their communities, are rising stars in their industries, or have become active philanthropists. Have your school give an award for the alumni who continue to be very involved in your institution.

You can use all sorts of awards to recognize alums. For the most prestigious honors, choose a crystal or acrylic award. For awards with multiple winners, give plaques or medallions. A nice pen or pen set makes a great award, too.

Now is the time to order your awards and giveaways for reunion weekend. For help selecting the perfect products, contact the experts at Broadway Awards today.
