Funny Student Awards?

Question: Can these certificates be used as Funny Student Awards?

Answer: Yes!

Although the book wasn't written for specifically for students, many of the awards could apply to school kids. Here are a few examples:

* The Energizer Award for tireless energy.

* The Germophobe Award for the cleanest desk.

* The Coal to Diamond Award for grace under pressure.

* The Glass Half Full Award for most optimistic.

* The American Idol Award for being most likely to break into song.

These are just a few of the funny awards ready to print with no customization needed. There are dozens where you could change a word or two to make them applicable to students. For some, you'd have to use the customized template to re-word, but still it is a huge time-saver for you!
