Teacher Appreciation Week


Teacher Appreciation Week is here! Also known as National Teacher Week, it occurs on the first full week of May in the United States and Canada. Teacher Appreciation Day occurs on Tuesday of Teacher Appreciation Week.


If you want to do it up right, see if you can top the fine folks over at "Sweeten Your Day Events". In 2014, they threw a themed Hollywood Teacher Appreciation Week at their school, entitled "You're a Star".

Here are some of the things they did to make the teachers feel special:

  • "One of the most popular things that the teachers look forward to during this week are the door decorations!
  • About 2 weeks before the event I put up flyers around the school to get the students and teachers excited.
  • We also sent home reminders sheets to all the students of the daily activities so they could come prepared.
  • Each day we treated the teachers and staff with food or refreshments in the lounge to enjoy.
  • Each morning we had the principal play a little Oscar music and announce a few funny teacher awards over the speakers. It was a great way to spotlight everyone. Here were some of my favorites..."
From 101 Funny Teacher Awards by Larry Weaver
These are from my collection of 101 Funny Teacher Awards. I have to tell you, it feels good to see how people make fun and creative uses of these awards. They really went the extra mile! 
"We went around to all the classrooms and delivered the certificates along with a little star trophy. The kids all clapped and cheered for their teachers, so adorable!"
Small trophies with the award add that extra touch!
Thank you to Jen H. for your wonderful ideas. I hope it inspires you all to have the BEST Teacher Appreciation Week ever!

Administrative Assistant Day - Free Certificate of Appreciation

Administrative Assistant Day is actually a misnomer for Administrative Professionals' Day, although no one really calls it that. [Queue best Billy Bob Thornton in Sling Blade voice] Some folks call it Secretary's Day, some folks call it Executive Admin Day, some folks call it Office Managers Day...

No matter what you call it, the unofficial holiday occurs on the Wednesday of the last full week of April. Administrative Assistant Day 2015 falls on Wednesday, April 22, 2015. If one day isn't enough time for you to celebrate, the entire week is known as Administrative Professionals Week (formerly known as Secretary's Week).

So throw a party. Buy some gifts. Arrange some training.

Just don't ask your Administrative Assistant to plan their own party. What are you, a cast member from Mad Men? April 22 is their day to enjoy!

Funny Office Superlatives

When I wrote the original collection of Funny Awards in 2008, it had an obvious office slant. This largely came from my own experience working in an office environment.

In 2013, I set out to put all of the office-specific awards into their own collection for the first time. The result is “101 Funny OfficeAwards.”

From 101 Funny Office Awards by Larry Weaver
Whether it’s a corporate office, church office, or manufacturing plant office, there are certain situations and references that are unique to office culture. From cubicles to computers, meetings, break rooms, desks, office gossip — 101 Funny Office Awards covers it all.

I find the best source of awards inspiration comes from performing at company office parties.

I hear the same things everywhere – the coffeepot is always empty, Internet surfing is restricted, and the office temperature is too hot (or too cold). Sound familiar? 


Managers want to show employees that they are fun and have a sense of humor. Unfortunately, their attempts at humor often border on inappropriate or offensive.

If you’re trying to come up with your own office awards, don’t worry. I've done the work for you.

Some of the office superlatives honor those co-workers who are:
  • most likely to pass off work to others
  • least likely to commit to anything
  • most likely to lose paperwork
  • most likely to extend meetings
  • most likely to surf the Internet
  • most likely to dress casually
  • most likely to devour the break room food
  • most likely to send emails in ALL CAPS 

I am serious about customer satisfaction. Every purchase comes with my cell phone number. If you have any issues, I’m here to help.

If you want to purchase 101 Funny Office Awards, look for 3 things: written by “Larry Weaver”, my photo on the cover, and “funawards.com” in the URL. Purchase directly from me at www.funawards.com/office-awards
