Funny Awards Update 2018

We're pleased to announce updates to all of our Funny Award collections for 2018. Here's an overview of the improvements...

101 Funny Employee Awards
What's New in Version 4.1

  • Added Table of Contents
  • Added Troubleshooting Guide
  • Reworded 8 award titles and/or descriptions

The Table of Contents is such a useful feature, it makes me wonder why I never included it before. Same with the Troubleshooting Guide. It's a lot of the same information you'll find on our Support page, but you won't have to exit the PDF to find your answers. The rewordings were mostly removing references to living males (Ryan Seacrest, David Copperfield, LL Cool J, Wolfgang Puck, Mick Jagger, Bruce Springsteen...).

101 Funny Office Awards
What's New in Version 1.1
  • Added Table of Contents
  • Added Troubleshooting Guide
  • Reworded 5 award titles and/or descriptions
It seemed like the right time to retire the "Crackberry" award. We all recall the Blackberry fondly, but - much like an aging PC - it's memory is starting to fade. There was also an reference to the OLD Stephen Colbert show that has been removed. And I took out references to Al Gore, Dr. Phil, and Marvin Gaye because. 

101 Funny Teacher Awards
What's New in Version 2.1
  • Added Table of Contents
  • Added Troubleshooting Guide
  • Reworded 4 award titles and/or descriptions
No major rewording changes here. I reworded a few awards to make them more gender-neutral or otherwise non-specific. 

101 Funny Award Certificates
What's New in Version 2.1
  • Added Table of Contents
  • Added Troubleshooting Guide
  • Reworded 13 award titles and/or descriptions
We took out some references to older pop culture moments (remember when Pippa Middleton upstaged Kate's wedding?), removed referrals to those who are no longer with us (R.I.P. "Brangelina"), and said goodbye to TV shows of the past (sorry "Duck Dynasty", "Fear Factor" and "Toddlers and Tiaras" fans). And perhaps, most importantly, scrubbed out references to any living males who might find themselves embroiled in a scandal at some point. So it's adios to awards named after Justin Beiber, Lil' John, Hugh Grant, Howard Stern, Jerry Springer, and yes - even Tom Hanks.

Why the Updates?
Because comedy is tough.
And it's easy to offend.

That's why I've done the hard work of coming up with unique wording for over 400 funny award certificates. 

But use your own judgement. I've made it easy to tweak the award titles and descriptions if there's any concern at all that someone might get upset.  

Remember that it's OK to laugh at ourselves. 
Be kind to others. 
Have fun!

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!
