There are many different reasons to give out an award or plaque:

Sales—hold a monthly or quarterly contest to see which sales rep brings in the most sales.
Youth Groups—whether you’re a Scout Master for the local Boy Scout troop or the coach on a Little League team, give your MVP players and team winners a trophy that they’ll cherish for life.
Retirement—the stereotypical “golden watch and a firm handshake” retirement party is so 1980s! Show your appreciation to your retiring employees with an intricately designed modern plaque that thanks them for their years of service and gives best wishes for a happy retirement.
Client appreciation—When was the last time you showed gratitude towards your biggest and best clients or customers? It’s never too late to create a “1st Annual Client Appreciation Award” and give out a few plaques that thank your best clients for their years of patronage.
Anniversaries—whether it’s mom and dad’s 25th wedding anniversary or the 1st year of quitting smoking, there’s always a reason to celebrate an anniversary.
Memorials—create a beautiful and lasting memento that celebrates the life of a human being or beloved pet.
