End of Year Candy Awards for Students and Staff

April 28, 2014 Margo Ensz

Reward your star students and staff and send them home with something sweet before summer. We’ve seen this candy-themed recognition idea on teacherspayteachers.com and Tunstall’s Teaching Tidbits, but you can create these delicious and personalized awards with a trip to the grocery store and your VariQuest Awards Maker on hand!

Nerds or Smarties Award: For your intelligence & hard work in the classroom

Milky Way Award: For quality work that was out of this world!

Spree Award: For always finishing work on time

Dove Award: For being the class peacemaker

Skittles Award: For always being full of colorful ideas!

M&Ms Award: For being a marvelous and magnificent student!

Snickers Award: For your sense of humor and your ability to make others laugh

Lifesavers Award: For always lending a hand to help others in class

Here is a longer list, but you can use your signature creativity as a teacher to find the perfect treat for each student!
