When trophies are given to only leaders, it can also create competition to increase everyone’s skill…

By giving trophies to participants you encourage them to settle… having trophies for just the winners gives other players something to aspire to and work harder in life. The participation trophies are handouts and in life there are no handouts. The…

    If youth athletes get an award for participating, they should be given an award for breathing too because both take little to no effort.

Youth athletes will get awards that they don't have to work hard for, but later in life they will come to realize that life isn't…
