I would like to nominate my son.He worked his butt off going door to door asking for a vote.It was a penny a vote.All the money he earned went to help the town.He was so happy to just to help,But his hard working paid off.
I wanted to nominate my four year old daughter. She is such an amazing little person. In 2013 she participated in many kids running events and even placed 1st in her age group at the Kids Mile Double Road Race, she even received three gymnastics medals. She continues to stay very active and inspires me everyday to be the best mom I can.
My grand daughter won her first trophy at age 2 at my karate tournament last year. The smile on her face cannot compare to the smile on my face.
A trophy for practicing the piano? What a powerful motivation this was and we had 17 students who succeeded in practicing for 100 consecutive days. BRAVO to all of you!
This was my first trophy ever and my first time ever competing for one. I got 1st place in pork, at the Jacksonville IL braggin rights BBQ cookoff in june 2011
It was an awesome feeling to recieve this award after a hot, long but fun day! Also lit a fire in me to keep competing and further my collection of trophies and hold my own chicken wing cookoff for the Amvets post 100
This was my first car show with my custom 70 nova I went to my home town car show without telling anyone it was my car and I won outstanding in class it was pretty cool
My daughter Brooklyn knows school is important. She got her first awards at a school. She was recognized for Perfect Attendance. Not only did she receive the award for her class, but for the entire school. She was the only student that year for perfect attendance. She also won a Spelling award. I asked the teacher where they got the awards and they mentioned you. I went to your site and could not believe all of the things you have for awards. I thought it was so awesome that you even had a chef award!! I love Crown Awards! I know my daughter Brooklyn loves her awards, because she still has them right next to her bed. Thanks for the beautiful awards!
We ordered boxing glove medals with purple ribbons for all our cancer survivors to wear at our relay for life fundraiser. They we great quality and we were proud to wear them !! Thanks Crown Awards for a high quality product
My eyes would glow at the sight of the sparkly cup in elementary and I was determined to have one. In my case it was little less academic achievement but more tenacity - Perfect Attendance Award.
I’m a Volunteer Library Director. I initiated the first reading contest inspiring about 10,000 minutes of reading time school wide. Children were impressed with the certificates and trophies. Upon closing of our 3rd contest, I am proud to say that every grade is averaging 10,000 minutes each. Which goes to show, little gold cup can inspire a child to make a dream reality.
I coach a class C jv cheering team and we compete against class A and B schools. We did very well, it was close, but we didn't win a trophy. I feel that they deserved to win one so I ordered them all one as well as my assistant, manager and helper. I only wish I had ordered myself one as they came out great! The team LOVED them. And more importantly I loved giving them to them!
I won this award for casting a spell that turned 3000 people into goats. It means so much to me to be recognized by my peers!
Sporting the Mexically Gold Speedo in 1968, I won my first trophy, setting a district record in the 8&Under; 25-yard backstroke at 14.7 in the process. I still remember the race and the time to this day, 46 years later, and still swimming. The local newspaper covered the meet, and the picture made it into the sports pages.
First trophy 1982. My brother played flag football and I cheered for his team. Our team won the league championship and the cheerleaders won the state cheer competition.
My son Joe's first trophy for his Pinewood Derby.
Me and my 6 friends from high school (THE NORMANDY GANG) celebrated OUR 50th anniversary as friends by entering 56' Corvette in the Antique Car Race "The Great Race" from Washington DC to Seattle, WA.
It was the flirst time the entire "Gang" was together in 20 years. We had a blast and finished the race in the top 20 out of 102 cars. We earned an "ACE" for a perfect score one day. We are all over 70 and I know we would agree it was the most memorable time of our lives. Our wives accompanied us all the way in their van. We are: Noel, Mark, Frosty, Jerry, Lee, Sherwood and Harry.
The last 5 years of my father's life he lived with me in St. louis. He went to all my bowling league play. People would ask others to move their seats so my father could sit and watch being a little feeble. He saw me bowl an 800, a couple 299's and 298's, but not a 300 which he was looking forward to. He passed away with me at his side in the hospital. I flew him home to Vermont to get his honor guard and military funeral. After a few days i went back to St. louis, and 2 days later was my men's league. I was sad, had the flue. I bowled 11 strikes in a row in the 2nd game, and when I threw that last ball, know int was there, I looked up and said with tears, this one is for you dad. The guys thought I was to emotional over a 300, but finally understood what it meant to my dad. I have bowled 28 more since that day, and i still think about my picture with him holding my ball on the alley with my name on the big board in back. It's been 15 years, and I still tear up when typing things like this.
My first trophy was in 2001 for a poetry contest in Jr. High. I was so proud of it, and to this day I enter contest for poetry and do so well with it.
6/29/73 - 16 years old - playing gold with BFFs. Had one of life's magic moments, a hole in one but the course brushed us off as kids telling a lie. Saved the ball for 20 years and finally bought my own trophy. Broke my heart but a life lesson I'll NEVER forget!
My first trophy wasn't even a trophy but a medal. This medal was better than any trophy as it was the first award I had ever received and it was for MVP of a game when I played Atom Hockey (10 years old). I kept that medal proudly displayed throughout my youth, but sadly in my 20's when I was moving, I lost that medal. I now make sure that every year I purchase trophies for the Soccer and Hockey teams I Coach because I understand the significance of a small amount of plastic, metal and marble.
On February22, 2014, I went to a swimming race! I was so nervous at the beginning, but then, it was fun! I felt like playing. At last, I won 1st place for Breaststroke!!
I am a ski instructor at Waterville Valley Ski Area. I used the skier (medallion) trophy as a reward for an exceptional well behaved, hard working, an fun student after the lesson was over. The expressions and joy that each and everyone one of these students gave me was truly priceless. I had parents come up to thank me and exclaim the joy and happiness their child had experienced after receiving their (Crown) GOLD medallion trophy. Thank you Crown Awards for a solid gold product.
This year is my 6 year old daughters first time on the hip hop team. The first competition she received the team trophy. Her coach said she got it for being the youngest on the team, but paying the most attention, keeping up, knowing her spot, etc. She may be the youngest and the smallest, but her energy, determination, and passion for the sport of cheer and hip hop are certainly huge! She ended up fallig asleep with her trophy that night, and said she was so proud of herself and that was the best day ever!
First year of hockey 1966... a Grandfather (Papa) that never missed a game. A hard-working factory shoe maker that never had extra money - but always enough. He hand-crafted a plaque, and attached a silver dollar for every goal I scored that year (30). Inspiring me onto a multi-million dollar career in the NHL! No not really ... but the time Papa took to create such a unique award, was priceless. I have carried the confidence of that first "trophy" through all my working and personal life - knowing you can reach the goal with hard work and commitment. Thanks Papa!
I was amazingly excited, happy, and so very thankful.... It was beautiful and amazing.... This trophy couldn't of been design any better.... I now buy once r twice a year from crown awards for my organization for the last past 6yrs....
When I was younger I made plastic car models all the time. I was pretty good at it and really paid attention to details. It payed off because I still do today. I entered a Revell Model Making Contest. My selection was a black plastic model of a 1932 Ford Coupe. I made the model as a Hot Rod. I spray painted the body red with red & white seats. The seat of two colors were flocked, which is a fuzzy material applied to wet paint. The roof insert was black to simulate canvas. I used parts from other models for the sooped up chevy engine. I added 6 carbs, made spark plug wires and hoses from my mom’s sewing kit thread. I built a show stand from scrap wood at school making it a 3 step tiered platform. I installed a row of sanctions around the car with my mother’s silver chain necklace as a barrier between the sanctions. As it turned out I won first place in my age group (12 - 14) and I still have the trophy today in my man cave display case. When I entered the service my mother gave the model car to my younger cousin to play with, it’s gone.
I got my first trophy being a 5k runner. I have been training hard for years. Running in the sweltering heat and in the icy cold. I kept training and training and I didn't let anything stop me. Then I finally our local 5k race was back on and I was ready. I ran it like the wind and got first place. It was a great feeling!
In the early 70's my town had a contest for Best Decorated Bike in the July Fourth parade. The theme was “Childhood Dreams”. My family worked for a week forming and decorating a refrigerator box and attaching it to my bike, making it into the Good Ship Lollypop, complete with gold lettering, fake candy and sail. It was hard to ride and steer but it rivaled some of the actual floats. I remember seeing the 1st place trophy and how much taller it was than the others. I was so happy I cried when they presented it to me.
Both of my daughter's won First place in the 2014 Bi-County Math Competition. They look at their medals at least once a day. Mom & Dad are very happy
My first trophy was earned in 1964 while I was attending a small teachers' college in Medford, Wisconsin. I had never played sports in high school, but one day at college the high school coach saw me shooting hoops in the gym. He asked if I would like to join the team as they could really use me with the practice squad. I didn't play many minutes that year, but I was proud to have contributed in practice to a team that won the State Championship for two year Wisconsin colleges in 1964. It meant the world to me at that time, as when I was in school very few awards and trophies were awarded, unlike the many awards that are awarded to young people today.
My first time to travel by an aircraft on 22nd January 2012 saw me smiling as it was also my first time to win an award in South Africa. So the joy and celebration for the award and aircraft made my day, Since then I celebrate that date annually.
My first trophy was one of the greatest experiences. It made me feel excited to get a first place trophy for checkers. It inspired me to help others play and win. And what was fantastic, I was the winner the following year. I considered it a true blessing.
After years showing my horse, a pinto, at fairs and 4-H shows, never winning, finally did win, and that trophy means SO much. Trophies commemorate not only triumphs of a time or moment in time, but all that went INTO the achievement, and all that so many people involved will always mean to you.
I won my first trophy when I was I was 11 years old - it was for a 4-H sponsored tractor driving contest. The best part of the whole experience was that I beat out 5 boys for this award! I've been driving tractors since I was 4 years old so it was a piece of cake to manipulate the tractor and trailer through the driving course. My dad was so proud!
I purchased the trophy for my 4 year old granddaughter who conquered the "big hill" on her first season of skiing. It gave her a big "boost" to keep trying to ski!
My greatest moment in winning my first trophy came through a game of checkers. With a wing and a prayer I got first place. Lol This has inspired me to help others in winning. Even though I was nervous, the smile on my face was priceless when they called my name. Lol :)
1982...My brother played flag football and I cheered for his team. Our team won the league championship and our cheer squad won the state cheer competition. Those were the only trophies I ever received as a kid. I still have them.
My first trophies I got was when I was in 8th grade and I was on a bowling team. Back when I was a kid, they typically handed out ribbons if you particiapted and did well in sports. When I got 3 trophies all at once, my dad got out his instamatic camera. It was a big deal and we set all the awards out on the dining room table and dad took 2 photos of it. That way he could have one and so could I. I was so proud, but tried to look cool in the picture.
My 1st trophy was in the 1st grade when I won an art contest. I thought it was the best thing in the world! It made me feel special. I will never forget it! It broke and it broke my heart. I will always remember it though. It had a beautiful eagle on it.
It was so a wonderful feeling we where playing the final and in the last min we scored the winning goal, everybody got crazy and we celebrated like never before. It was the best feeling ever.
I remember winning a trophy for having perfect attendance for the first six years I was in school. At the end of my 5th grade year, before moving on to middle school, I was awarded a trophy by the principal for never missing a day of school from Kindergarten through 5th grade. This was a really big deal back then and would be an even bigger deal today!
I received my very first Choreography award as a competitive dance teacher! I've spent my whole life dancing and have always had a strong desire to teach children and create beautiful visual art to share with the viewers. This award was my ground-breaking moment to my future as a choreographer in the industry!
