Over the past week the topic of awards ceremonies was a much discussed and debated topic in my Twitter feed. This was due to Chris Wejr’s blog mention in the Vancouver Sun and his subsequent interviews on the radio.
Also this week, I came across this youtube clip of Richard Phillips Feynman, winner of Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965. He pulls no punches on how he feels of such honors. He says, "Honors are unreal...I don't like honors."
I don't know how he would feel about school awards ceremonies, but I enjoyed his opinion of such honors for adults.
