Now that you’ve taken the time to pick out an award and selected the wording, and your award is complete, here are some tips for making your award presentation a special one.
1) Remove the award from the box or packaging beforehand.
2) Remember, the audience is curious to see what the recipient is receiving. Show the audience the award, read the inscription, and present it to the recipient.
3) After the recipient takes possession of the award, have him or her turn and display it again for the audience.
4) Please be aware that during most presentations, someone will want to take a photo or video. Alert the recipient to such requests, and do your best to position the recipient and his or her award clearly in the photographer’s view, along with other ceremony participants.
