Funny Awards UK

Ten years ago a Global phenomenon was launched with the first edition of “Funny Employee Awards” by comedian Larry Weaver. These cheeky awards have been a long-time favorite in the United Kingdom.

We've since expanded the collection with "Funny Office Awards", "Funny Award Certificates", and "Funny Teacher Awards".

These Funny Awards UK photos are from Feversham Primary Academy in Bradford, England (courtesy @FevershamSchool on Twitter).

These funny certificates are all from "Funny Teacher Awards", found here:

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. 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).

The best gift for administrative assistant's day is something homemade and from the heart. Quickly customize your own "Admin Appreciation" Award Certificate with our free printable PDF.  You can type directly onto the certificate template and add your own message before printing. Within seconds you'll have a unique award that will bring smiles to your favorite Executive-Admin-Professional-etary! Just click the link to download the PDF and enjoy!

Typical gifts for Secretary's Day include cards, pins, flowers, gift certificates, lunch, and gift baskets. The  International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP) suggests that employers support the holiday by providing training opportunities for their administrative staff through continuing education, self-study materials, or seminars.

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? This is their day to enjoy!
