Family reunion awards will add fun and interest.
Whether it be an award of excellence or certificate of achievement, family reunion awards will add fun and interest to your program or family meeting.
Decide ahead of time what awards you want to present. Ask questions on the registration form that will help you identify the winners beforehand. Or, accept nominations from the floor and select the winner based on the amount of applause each candidate receives.
Use your family’s unique heritage, qualities and demographics to determine your family reunion awards categories. In addition to the printable award certificates listed above, you may want to consider the following:
largest family branch
person with the longest name
family branch with the most members in attendance
baldest male / most hair
tallest / shortest
first to register
first to arrive
most dangerous job
who looks most like ___ ancestor
members of the military
If games have been a key activity for your reunion, consider award categories such as:
most likely to tip the canoe
most valuable player
Free award certificates are fairly easy to come by, so make up as many categories as you need. If you’ve held a family talent or variety show, you might include:
most supportive role
If you made crafts or t-shirts as a family, you might have:
most original design
most likely to be thrown away
Presentations can be wacky with gag gift-type awards or more serious with classier awards. Present in an oscar-like fashion or hoot and holler with a clapping drum roll. The person presenting the awards can greatly determine the overall mood and the prizes can make your meeting more fun, too.
Goofy prizes might include a can of hairspray for the baldest man, a mock life insurance policy for the person with the most dangerous job, a pair of handcuffs for the biggest cheater or sun glasses for the person with the shiniest project.
Many additional free award certificates can be personalized and then printed at
