The Recognition Minute
Easter April 12 2017, 0 Comments
At this time of the year, awarding trophies might be furthest from your mind. It is school holidays. The extra long, long weekend is just around the corner and many people will be out of town, enjoying some well-deserved recreation and family time.
Easter is a time of deep reflection for many people around the globe. We share those sentiments as we think about the meaning of this season. It is both a solemn occasion and a celebration. But the celebration is not because of a race won or trophy earned. Neither are any there any medals. It is simple and profound; a time to remember redemption for both Christians and Jews.
So, may we take this opportunity to wish our Jewish customers and friends chag semeach this Pesach and our Christian customers and friends a truly blessed Easter.
Wherever you may travel, be safe. We hope to see you soon, rested and refreshed.
Not much hockey and plenty of cricket! March 23 2017, 0 Comments
Well, let’s back away a little from the hockey theme to see what else is happening on the sports front, this weekend. It’s none other than Newzealand vs our boys in the third game of the test, having won one, drawn one. Saturday’s game will be the decider.
New Zealand are spending time debriefing and soul-searching as they try to prevent their season ending with a whimper following the three-day thrashing at the Basin Reserve.
Five days and a session of toe-to-toe cricket - throughout the Dunedin game and until lunch on the second day in Wellington - unraveled with alarming speed against South Africa. No wonder Kane Williamson looked bemused as he tried to explain it away in the bowels of the Basin on Saturday evening.
New Zealand - both the players and management - have been reluctant to say that the visit of South Africa would define their season. But if they do not put in a better performance at Seddon Park starting on Saturday the last few weeks will certainly influence how their 2016-17 campaign is judged.
Both cricket and hockey trophies are available now at Prestige Awards, whether for your game in the nets on the super turfs or just for some neighbourhood fun in the park.

The All-important Badge March 20 2017, 0 Comments
From the first day of life, maybe even before a child is born, a name is selected. That name will stay with that child until the day they die. It is a life-long investment that is made on their behalf.
Perhaps that is why our names are so important to us. Even if we share our name with another, somehow, when our name it called we tend to believe it is for us alone. Have you ever been in a crowd and heard your name being called?
When we meet new people, is it not our names that we use first to introduce ourselves? “Hi, I’m Jack. You are?” Or, we may simply say our name and hand over a business card. A business card is something for the other person, whether stranger or friend, that contains many details but most important of all, our name.
Names are great conversation-starters. This is why so many more people in business wear badges, more than ever before.
The cashier in the bank has a name badge pinned to her chest. The waiter wears his badge prominently, so that patrons can call for him when they need service. It is also useful to the waiter, to help the customer remember who they should tip.
In the security industry, employees need to be identified in order to differentiate them from civilians and other perpetrators of mischief. For this reason, badges are manufactured to specific specifications, unique to that organisation.
Badges are not only worn as a means of personal identity. Many forms of insignium are worn to indicate rank or level of achievement, in the form of a scroll or possibly some other shape associated with the purpose – a star, a cross or a particular logo.
At Prestige Awards, we make badges. We bring identity to the school teacher, the corporate employee and the pupil. We recognise achievement and help give you your identifiable brand so that you are addressed properly and remembered.
Badges are made to order. The badge may be pinned with a brooch pin or held onto the clothing using a strong magnet. It’s your choice.
