Does winning an award matter?
The list of awards these days seems endless. From the prestigious Nobel prize, to awards for football, music, movies and fashion. Some organisations give awards to outstanding workers and, of course, at a younger age awards are often given out in school.
They're used as ways of encouraging competition, guarding against complacency and rewarding best practice, but do people need rewards in order to do their best?
Have you ever won an award? What difference did it make to you if any? Do certain awards have more value than others? If you've never won a prize how do you feel? Send us your view.
