I was kicking this around in my head about what sort of awards help people realize their accomplishment. That gratification after a lot of hard work in the breed pens up to the show pens. I know that just the sheer thrill of victory is more than enough. But we also like awards. My question is which would you rather have? and I think this discussion has already been talked about a year or two back? But lets re-hash this, I would like to hear what you guys think. If I am having a show and going to award the top 5 Old English, which would you prefer? Cash prizes or a Plaque or Trophy with the date a place of which it was won?
For me it would be the Plaque's. Money comes and goes, I know that feed is high but I'm not in it for the PROFITS, lol. But I like to have something for the memory. I like to hang them on the wall and remember each bird that I won that award with and that show in particular, who was there. Just a lot of memories.
OK now that I have my sentimentalism out of the way, what are your thoughts on this?

I agree with you Ernie. I like the plaques and banners. Showing livestock all my life there was nothing more gratifying than hanging that Champion banner over the stall door at a livestock show. I think clubs could save some money by giving out nice banners vs, plaques or trophies. All of them mean more than money to me as well! Good discussion topic!

Ernie I think the Plaques is the way to go.Very seldom is there enough money to make any difference and I think most people do it for their accompishments and self gratification because after the show the only one that remembers most of the time is you ,to have a plaque you can look back and remember your accomplsiments

Ernie I thank I would just take the money, even though it would be.spent before I got home. I just go to the shows for the fun and to visit with friends. When I first started showing back in themid 1980 I loved the throphys and placks, but after a while as I older I boxed all of them up and gave them to the junior show to give to them. The most fun I have now is just feeding my chickens ever and spend time with the birds.In my 70,s now with health problems but love the birds more than ever and still have a few special placks in a box under my bed LoL.

I like a trophy or plaque to remember a show. The money is gone with no memories and I don't show enough for points to mean anything. Its nice to have something tangible.

would like to see the directors get together and make the awards look like the state that the show s being held, then we as members could strive to collect all 50 states, my states would be NC and SC. we make the Jamboree awards to look like NC.
