In ancient Greece, the term trophy meant “prize of war” and referred to any ornament or tangible object that was gained by victory in battle. Thank goodness we don’t live like that anymore! Now when people think of trophies for teams, they think of the metallic, often golden miniature statues that are awarded at the end of little league season. Trophies are a great way to recognize the accomplishments of everyone from an athlete to a valuable employee. Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can use trophies for teams and companies.
So the little league team you coached has done their best. They have had wins and losses and you are proud of them. Why not acknowledge their collective accomplishment with individual team trophies?
Why not? While there are many people who complain about the “everyone gets a trophy policy” in team sports, there is a better way to acknowledge the achievements of both the team and the individual without sending that message that awards are easy to get. The way to do this is to give awards for exceptional achievements, like MVP or top goal scorer. Get creative with your awards ceremony.
Are you a manager who wants to inspire your employees and increase productivity? Believe it or not, it can be done with a trophy. Well, it can be done by acknowledging that your employees are valuable and doing a good job. Aside from pay raises, positive feedback – any feedback, really- is one of the top things that employees seek in the work world. There are a number of ways that you can convey your gratitude, and corporate trophies are one of them. From trophies to award plaques, there are a number of options to recognize your employees with.

Not all people are gifted athletically. Many of us are talented in the realm of facts, words and knowledge. If you are teacher or educator who wants to recognize the intellectual and academic achievements of your students, academic awards are a great way to do that. Academic trophies are best suited for recognizing a student who has won an academic contest like a spelling bee.
