10-Year Class Reunion Awards Ceremony

I organized the awards ceremony for my 10-year class reunion that took place a couple of weeks ago.  I spent a couple of weeks scourging the internet and the dollar stores for award categories and humorous gift ideas.  Most of what I found online was for later class reunions (30th, 40th, etc.) and weren’t overly appropriate for one’s 10th anniversary.  For example, no one wants to win the award for most grey hair 10 years out of high school.  Below you can find the list that I came up with and the dollar store gifts I found.  (Please note that a few of the gifts didn’t actually make it to Indiana and were substitute at the last minute.  This was my original list.)  I put each award in a brown paper gift bag and put cute tags on them with the award name.  I determined who earned each award either from the address list, a survey I created on Google Docs, or from voting during the event.  I may be biased, but I think people enjoyed the awards.
