Challenge Coins Reward Program Participants for Completing Courses

January 27th, 2012

Custom challenge coins have been adopted by colleges, universities, and trade schools as a gift to hand out upon a program’s completion.  These highly regarded pieces of memorabilia are symbolic in nature because they resemble currency or medallions which are thought to be honorable and valuable.  Students feel a sense of accomplishment when receiving this type of award.

Challenge coins are the perfect giveaway item for a number of different reasons.  First and foremost, they are large enough to feature a complex design as well as text.  This is especially true because custom coins have two sides to work with.  If a school decides to use both sides of a double sided challenge coin, they can customize one with the school’s information and the other with the class or program’s information.  This allows each year’s coins to be relevant and personal.

Custom made challenge coins serve as great incentives for everyone involved in a program.  Individuals strive to be their personal best and meet course objectives.  They also try their skills at being leaders which can be beneficial when applied to their personal lives and professional careers.

A reward item that is meaningful and attractive, a challenge coin makes people excited about what they are doing.  This gives them the initiative to complete whatever tasks life throws at them.  It teaches them lessons about determination and perseverance.

Custom Challenge Coins for Honor Roll Students

August 26th, 2011

It’s that time of year.  Schools and universities around the country have resumed and students of all ages are hitting the books once again in pursuit of higher education.  Those that successfully complete their class with satisfactory grades get recognition on their school’s Honor Roll.  This is a perfect time for academic institutes to reward their efforts with custom challenge coins.

Challenge coins are the perfect motivational tool.  Their double sided design allows ample room for both text and images.  Schools can include their mascot or logo on the front of the coin as well as a personalized message about the Honor Roll on the back.  This allows students to see how their efforts paid off and when and where they received such an award.  Recipients of the coins can show them off to their friends as a way of inspiring them to get good grades and be awarded a coin of their own throughout the school year.

Tangible rewards like custom coins have a positive impact on schools.  Students are more driven and miss classes less.  They are more likely to help other students and tend to be actively involved in extracurricular activities such as sports, theater, and academic clubs like Quiz Bowl, Debate, and Forensics.  Well-rounded students do better when they finally reach the “real world” because they know how to balance their time and make choices about what is seen as a priority and what is not.

Custom challenge coins are great for schools in a number of other ways.  Here are just a few to think about:

  • Custom coins showcase exceptional teachers. Without their efforts, many students wouldn’t reach academic excellence.
  • Custom coins help identify leaders. Students who reach academic success are often successful at everything they put their minds to.
  • Custom coins encourage teamwork. During group projects, students must come to a consensus and work together in order to receive an A.

Before the first quarter ends, order custom challenge coins for the students that make Honor Roll.  You will be pleased by the results that you get once everyone learns that there is a reward involved with getting good grades.  Host an awards ceremony or banquet in the students’ honor and don’t forget to order velvet boxes to present the coins in when you call us.  They increase the perceived value of the coins and also look classy.
