Presenting Awards

When recognizing someone for a job well done, it's important to highlight the value of both the award and the recipient. To create a memorable presentation, explain the criteria for the award and how the recipient met those criteria. Here are a few additional guidelines:

  • Tell a story about the significance of the award.
  • Pronounce names of the recipients correctly.
  • Provide background on the recipient.
  • Hold the award respectfully and hand it to the recipient as if it were a treasure.
  • Wait to invite the recipient to the lectern until you formally introduce them.
  • Stand so the audience can see the recipient and the award clearly.
