What awards and prizes have you won over the years?

Asked by joeschmo (1396points) March 22nd, 2019

Go ahead and show off… you deserve it.

Where are they displayed?

I recently found a box full of running, marathon and the kind, medals just next to the trash in my neighborhood. It was not a mistake. The person threw it away, not wanting to actually throw it IN the bin, I assume.

Would you ever spring clean your medals away? Would you Marie Kondo your trophies out?

Thank you.

They are not displayed. I have no idea where they are.

My mom was awarded several 600 series patches in bowling. When Rick and I joined a bowling league she gave them all to me. No pressure there, Mom! They are in my bowling bag.

It is probably written on the diploma. If not, someone, somewhere, has some newspaper clippings of it. Maybe. Probably not.

OH, this is a good one. I won 4th National Prize for a Most Beautiful Child contest in Philadelphia . Mom got $20 and a 3’ X 3’ poster of my photo which I still have. This was in 1956. lol Not much to brag about here! No trophies to shine until sparkling.

I won 1st place in a washer pitching contest at my school once. Other than that a few hundred dollars at the casino is about all I’ve ever won. Not much of a trophy for that one, but it did help fund a single mom’s nursing school education.

The Butlers Association of Great Britain voted me as employee of the decade & any suggestion of bribery will be contested in her majesty’s crown court.
I especially enjoyed the trophy awarded to me, a bronze custodian saluting on command…how very apt & really rather touching when you think about it.
