Teacher Recognition Awards Wording Ideas

Whether your plaque is destined for an enthusiastic elementary teacher or a hard-working graduate school professor, you can always add text and images to customize the award.

Not quite sure what to include? A favorite poem or inspirational saying could be precisely the right fit. Or maybe your recipient is known for a funny saying that would look terrific on the surface of the trophy. Let your imagination guide you as you consider all your choices. 

Recognize a Fantastic Teacher Any Time of Year

Teachers shouldn’t only be remembered during the holidays or when the time comes to celebrate retirement. True leaders in the classroom should be heralded as their careers unfold. That provides motivation and incentive to keep charging forward as an innovative educator, and also inspires that standout teacher’s peers to elevate their methods.

Consider how moving it will be for an educator to be honored with something as beautiful as a 100 percent optical crystal teacher recognition award plaque like those offered here. Our custom crystal teacher recognition awards are genuinely one-of-a-kind. There are so many designs available, and you can play designer yourself by adding color, a school logo or any styling you feel will enhance the plaque.

What Makes Optical Crystal Award Trophies Stand Out

You will quickly notice that our awards, plaques and trophies look spectacular online. They are even more stunning in person thanks to our choice of material — optical crystal

What makes optical crystal the ideal choice for high-end teacher trophies? Unlike acrylics, glass or plastic, optical crystal holds its clear coloring for life — it never yellows or cracks. Consequently, your favorite teacher can proudly display a "best teacher" award trophy for decades without the trophy losing a bit of shimmer.

Additionally, optical crystal playfully refracts sunlight and artificial light, creating a warm, natural glow. When placed on a desk, bookshelf or other display, an optical crystal teacher trophy demands attention. Recipients love to proudly show them off in their classrooms or offices.

Give Your Teacher Award Trophy a Colorfill Advantage

To make your teacher recognition award stand out even more, you may want to add colorfill to the optical crystal plaque. For a nominal additional fee, our team will color in the engraved surfaces of your plaque, such as lines of text or a logo.

Colorfill enhances the appearance of any etchings, bringing more life and character into the overall appearance of the award. Your teacher recipient will love the final product. 

Buy Teacher Trophies for the Top Instructors in Your School or Organization

Do you have an annual event that centers around heralding teachers who have consistently gone above and beyond, both in and out of the classroom? Make sure they know just how important they are by presenting them with solid, substantial trophies made of optical crystal.
