Description

With the hard work done, the time for recognition and celebration has arrived. For the event, the team may have been given distinguishing hats or shirts, but were afraid to wear them. Now that all is done and a success, the teams should wear them with pride! It is customary to award certificates with photos to each team member, as well as take photographs at the celebration party. Some events give special recognition awards to the participant who traveled the farthest, or the team member who got the dirtiest, or something similar. Such awards allow everyone to share in the lighthearted aspects of the event. Immediately after the celebration, the executive team is drawn together by the event coordinator to thoroughly review the event and see first-hand, the improvements.
