I think ribbons and certificates cheapen the experience of winning. A nice big trophy allows someone to have the braggin rights and pride of working their butts off all night and shows they were the best at what they did.
Imagine how it would look if in the NHL a team won and skated around holding up a ribbon instead of the Stanley Cup or winning the Super Bowl, holding up a certificate and say Im Going To Disneyland! Just takes away from the moment you worked so hard for.
I earn my money through my job. I compete for the trophies.
