I won a ton of awards in school....
gold key awards for art pieces
a calendar art contest, I won the cover/poster grand prize of $1000, + $200
Since my hay days are over....
I won a diamond loupe pin from the company I used to work for for highest volume in sales
tons of free jewelry awards for "diamond shows" that produced 20% volume increase
tons of free watches from Movado for highest in sales during the x-mas season...
twice I was awarded $500 gift certificates for $500 club, which was an inventory that was within $500 +or- where we were supposed to be.
But all of this was a long time ago... I haven't won anything in years!
