Opinion of the Week: Do you believe there is a danger to everyone getting a trophy in sports or should we give all children participation trophies? Why?
Closed

How does it work? The Toluna Team and Toluna Team CA accounts will each post a topic on their profile every Tuesday, starting with “Opinion of the Week…” Write a quality opinion on that topic and we will choose 1 random winner for each the US and Canada’s topics, to win 3,000 points.

Ground Rules: Open to US and CA members only. Every Tuesday the TolunaTeam and TolunaTeamCA will each create a topic on their profiles regarding a specific theme, and ask members to provide their opinion. One winner will be selected from each the US and Canada to win 3,000 points. Winners will be chosen at random from all eligible posts. Eligible posts must be in compliance with the Toluna Member Code of Conduct. Opinion of the Week winners will be announced within 1 week from launch of Topic, and bonus points credited to member accounts via direct credit.

Trophies are for winning. If you gave trophies for other things, say best sportsmanship, then I could see it.

I don't agree with the trend of everyone getting a trophy. Maybe a ribbon for being involved. The trophy should go to the top or MVP for the event

I don’t think everyone getting a trophy is a good idea, as it promotes a sense of entitlement and fails to teach children how to lose gracefully. I think congratulating effort is definitely necessary, and we shouldn’t put any child down if they come short of meeting their goal. Pep talks or doing something fun to celebrate a good game is a better alternative, as these actions both lift the children’s spirits yet sends the message that you don’t always win at everything in life.
