Introducing the Winner’s Circle Medals

Each medal has unique 3D detailing

If you’ve ever had the chance to look at a young athlete’s medal collection, you may have noticed something– there are usually a few medals hanging up in multiples.  Which leads to the next question– what do we have that’s new or different?  With both budget and unique design in mind, this year we created the Winner’s Circle medal series.

Our 2-1/2 inch medals are exclusively available directly from Hodges Badge Company, and come in antiqued gold, silver and bronze finishes. Available sports include: baseball, basketball, football, men’s gymnastics (2), women’s gymnastics (2), swimming (2), men’s track & field,  and women’s track & field.  For other sports, consider the Victory and Star Performer medals.  There are also two academic designs- the Lamp of Learning and Stack of Books.

Putting the medals in your hand, they feel heavy and substantial- similar to more expensive medals.  The Winner’s Circle medals start at just $1.35.  You can choose to customize the awards with our printed satin neck ribbons.

What do you look for when chosing a medal?  Does having something different make your awards more memorable?

Red Ribbon Week 2011

It’s that time of year– Red Ribbon Week 2011 will take place from October 22nd through the 30th.  Schools and community groups around the country will honor the sacrifice of DEA Agent Kiki Camarena in the fight against drugs, and pledge their commitment to be drug free.

Need supplies so that your school or students mark the occasion with spirit?  Hodges Badge Company offers not only the traditional anti-drug designs on red ribbons, but a wide range of customized educational takeaways. 

Put your own message on a dog tag. Available with or without engraved plate.

New this year (and very popular) are both stock and custom dog tags.  The dog tags are printed in full color, and can be ordered with a personalized engraved gold plate on the reverse side.

You can also choose to pass out buttons, keychains or ribbon wristbands.

Of course the classic red ribbon is kept in stock in over 40 designs.  Even better, prices for the ribbons have come down for 2011!  So even with a tight budget, each student can still have the chance to show their choice to be drug free.

Does your school or group have special activities to mark Red Ribbon Week?  We’d love to hear your story or see your pictures of the symbolic celebration.
