Pinewood Derby Trophies and Awards
Pinewood derby trophies and awards are great to commemorate the annual cub scout event. Every year across the United States, cub scouts are busy working on a new design for their pinewood derby car. The pinewood car may be a classic design or a modern looking dragster or even a bold new, totally unique design, but the goal of the pinewood derby is always the same - to build the fastest car and win the championship pinewood derby trophy! The history of pinewood derby ribbons and trophies goes back generations. And we carry on that honorable tradition at QuickTrophy with every order we build. Our mission is to build pride into every trophy and award we make so the person giving out the award is proud to hand it out and the person receiving the award is proud to receive the award. We love pinewood derby trophies so much, one of our staff even wrote a poem about them - Ode to Pinewood Derby Time. We manufacture all the pinewood derby awards and trophies and personalize them at our trophy factory in northern Michigan and ship them out by the next business day directly to you!
How Do I Make A Pinewood Derby Trophy?
You can make a Pinewood Derby Trophy using your own Pinewood Derby car. This trophy will proudly display your derby car at the top of the trophy – your car becomes part of the trophy. And best of all, the car is held in place by magnets, so your derby car is securely held in place while on display, but if you want to take it off to show your friends, you simply give the pinewood derby car a little twist and it pops right off, ready to race.
Here’s how to do it:
Go to the Pinewood Derby Participation Trophies page on the QuickTrophy web site and look for trophies that are named Pinewood Derby Car Stand – there are 3 of them. Each trophy is a different size and the size is measured without the car on top. The 3 sizes are 5 ½ inch, 7 ½ inch, and 9 ½ inch. Select the size you want and you can change the color of the column you want to either signify the placement of the trophy (blue for first place, red for second place, silver for third) or you can select a column color that will look good with your pinewood derby car. Then select the quantity of trophies you want. If you only need a trophy for your car, then select 1, but if you are getting trophies for all entries, then change it to that number. Then click the “Add to Order” button.
On the next page you get to specify the engraving you want on the plate on the base of the trophy. The top section allows you to type in the engraving you want to appear on all the plates, for instance, the name of your troop could go on the top line or the year could go on the bottom line of all trophies. On the bottom section of the engraving page you can type the text you want to appear on each individual trophy, like the name of the winner, or the category won by the recipient. Then complete the order on the web site.
Once QuickTrophy receives your order, we make the trophy to fit your specifications – the right size, color, and engraving. Then on the top of the trophy we put a flat plate that we adhere a strong 3 post magnet. Stuck on the magnet is a small piece of steel that has adhesive on one side. When you receive the trophy, simply remove the protective paper on the adhesive side of the steel piece, center the steel piece on the magnet posts, and gently place your derby car on the top of the trophy, pressing it down so the adhesive sticks to the bottom of your car.
There you have it! A custom made trophy with your car built right into the trophy. Now you can place it on your mantle or on a shelf to show your award winning Pinewood Derby Car design to everyone!
