Can Medals Stir Competitiveness in Athletes?
A lot of debate has swirled around whether it is really a positive thing to provide school athletes with medals or not. Not because it is negative to award medals for great performance, but because some wonder how those athletes feel who do not manage to perform well enough to earn a medal. Regardless of which side of the argument you are on, the merits of the actual argument cannot be ignored. Ultimately, awarding medals for jobs well done does spur on healthy competitiveness among team members.
