Fresh Ideas for Recognizing Spring and Summer Athletes

This year’s sports awards banquets are just around the corner, and summer sports programs will soon be in full gear. If you’re a coach or athletic director, now’s the time to order your spring recognition and gear to support your summer sports programs. Here are a few fresh ideas for honoring your top athletes and making sure everyone has a great time this summer.

Cool Trophies and Awards for Student Athletes

Sports-themed trophies and medals are classic choices for recognizing student athletes. But there are many other ways to honor your athletes, too. Dog tags are a very popular and affordable choice for many sports programs. Students can wear the tags year-round and add tags to their chains season after season. We offer dog tags for many different sports, including baseball and track.

Medallions are another neat idea for recognition. They come in a variety of sizes, weights, and metals. You can custom engrave both sides of the medallion with your school’s name and mascot and your sports program. Some kids choose to carry the medallions around with them, while others may display them on their bookshelves at home.

Another funky option for recognition is the champion award belt. They’re not just for Hulk Hogan anymore! We’ve designed belts for all types of sports, from football and archery to cornhole. Just like medallions, you can customize your champion belts with your sport and mascot.

Swag for Summer Recreation Programs

Summer sports leagues are all about fun. Set your athletes up for success with neat giveaways. Water bottles are always appreciated in the summer. We offer trendy aluminum vacuum-insulated bottles that will keep water cold all day long. Customize them with your program’s colors and logo.

Hosting a sailing school or stand-up paddleboard class this summer? Consider offering your students a waterproof gear bag that’s clear on one side so they can still read their texts while they’re on the water. Choose your colors and add your logo.

Don’t forget the parents and other fans of your summer sports program! Every game and tournament needs more cowbell. Deck yours out in your team colors so fans know exactly where to throw down their picnic blanket or camp chairs.

There are many creative options for recognizing student athletes and supporting your summer sports program this year. If any these ideas have inspired you, contact us! We’ll help you find the perfect award and giveaways for your athletes.

Get Ready for End-of-Year School Awards

Get Ready for End-of-Year School Awards


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.
