Deliver a Personal and Memorable Award Presentation

The key to a memorable and effective award presentation is making the award personal to the recipient. You can do this by sharing stories about the recipient during the award presentation, inviting her family to attend, or presenting the award at a special event.  

If you don’t know the award recipient very well, have her complete a Tell Us About You form. This form is great for award presentations because it gives you some personal information about the recipient, and it can be a valuable tool for your other recognition programs, too. Talk to the award recipient's coworkers, too. They are a great source for personal stories that will make your award presentation memorable and meaningful for the recipient.

The award presentation itself is also very important! You must practice, practice, practice! For a great presentation, be sure to pronounce the recipient’s name correctly. Ask her manager or Human Resources if you have questions. In your speech, include specific details about how she earned the award, and tie her achievements to company goals and performances. Download our Award Presentation Guide for help writing your presentation.

The award trophy you choose will have a big impact on your award presentation. Are you presenting the award at a formal, informal, or casual occasion? Your award trophy should fit the recognition occasion. 

Award Trophies for a Formal Award Presentation
For our formal awards at Baudville, we present the Crystalline Tower Trophy to award recipients. We add a custom message, the recipient’s name and date to personalize the award. When creating your award, be sure to spell check! For a more budget-friendly award, present an award certificate to the recipient. When personalized, it can be just as memorable an award trophy.

Character Pins for an Informal Award Presentation
Struggling for the right words for your award presentation? You can create an award with a Character Pin and read the story at the award presentation. When recognizing a team or group of people, select a different Character Pin for each recipient based on their contributions, characteristics and personality. For more prestigious occasions, you can put a character story on a Jade Glass Trophy  or an engrave-any-story gift

Cheers Note for an Day-to-Day Award Presentation
Don’t forget, award presentations can be fun! For an easy day-to-day award, leave a Cheers Note on an employee’s desk with your personal note. Finding the note on their desk will be a fun surprise that will make an impact on the recipient.
