Should I Display Trophies and Medals

I remember clearly when I was growing up, all of the award medals and trophies that we won being clearly displayed where the whole world could see them in the family room. There were none that were shoved into a closet or into the attic and “forgotten.” After reading Veronica Romualdez’s article for eHow entitled “Ways to Display Sports Medals,” I started really wondering about trophies and medals.

Does that mean that my family was the only one who showcased every single trophy and accomplishment? I hope not because I do the same with my kids sports trophies, and my own from my childhood as a matter of fact.

Should I display trophies and medals for my kids? Or should I leave that to them? I think many people do at least for a little while. I mean what do they win them for? Not to be thrown into a box and shoved into a closet. I am proud of my kids sports accomplishments and will buy hundreds of shadow boxes to put them in and display if it comes to that. How about you? Do you hide your kids trophies or proudly put them on display for the world to see?

More often than not award medals and trophies get thrown in a closet, where they sit and collect dust until someone remembers them. If you don’t want that to happen to your sports medals and trophies, Veronica Romualdez has compiled a list of ways that you can have your trophies showcased for all to see.
