Create Custom Challenge Coins to Honor Exceptional Students

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012

Student recognition award programs keep pupils striving to meet their goals.  If you haven’t thought about implementing a program like this in your school, you should.  Recognition award coins are a great place to start.  Attractive and memorable, they boost morale while keeping standards high.  Students that want to achieve a goal will work hard until they are awarded a custom challenge coin.  If you have a tiered recognition program, the same students can earn more than one award throughout the year.  Coins can be cast in different types of metal to signify achievement.

Recognition coins are great for a number of reasons.  Let’s take a look at a few:

  • Awards teach students the value of hard work and perseverance.
  • Awards help students set and reach goals.
  • Awards improve the overall happiness and satisfaction of students.
  • Awards boost morale and give students the self-confidence to pursue other interests.
  • Awards discourage absenteeism.
  • Awards encourage teamwork and respect.

Challenge Coins Help Educate Children

Monday, November 5th, 2012

Bourg Elementary school ordered coins that were designed to serve a dual purpose.  The coins feature the school logo on the front and the 5 military seals on the back.  The school is using the coins as an educational tool for its students leading up to its Veterans Day celebrations and observance. The custom coins will also be used to honor the members of the faculty, staff and parents that have served in our armed forces.

For decades, challenge coins have been known for their rich military ties.  A symbol of hard work, perseverance, and dedication, challenge coins are perceived as the ultimate honor.  Children enjoy the coins because of their personal nature and sentimental value.  If you are an educator or work with a school or youth program, consider creating custom challenge coins to tie into your curriculum.  You’ll be pleased with how well these items will be received by students in the classroom.

ROTC Coins Are Visual Reminders For Its Recipients

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

ROTC programs are present on high school and college campuses across the nation.  The three branches of the military that offer this unique training program are the Army, Navy, and the Air Force. Participants in the program learn leadership skills, research areas of interest in terms of their career choices, receive scholarships that help them fund their educations, and give themselves an advantage by cultivating skills and experience prior to education.  Graduates of ROTC programs enjoy immense rewards.  In fact, once you make it through the program, you enter the military as an officer.

Challenge Coins Help Seal Bonds

Coins are made from high school to college programs that want to create a piece of memorabilia.  When you go through intense training like this, you form deep and long lasting bonds.  Custom challenge coins help capture the essence of these groups.  Creativity is always welcome when the design process starts.  If you can think of it, we can make it.

Each Program and Class Can Have Their Own Custom Designed Challenge Coin

Depending on which branch of ROTC program you are in, you will want to make sure you include the branch seal and the unit number you are a part of.  Like the example you see here, this ROTC program was from M.I.T. so a reference to Paul Revere was included on their coins.

Each program and class can keep one side of the coin universal to represent their school or branch of the military.  The other side can be used to reflect the unique personality of the ROTC program and school that has made it part of its curriculum.  This allows for endless possibilities in terms of design.  Each coin that we create for colleges and universities with ROTC programs are every bit as unique as the people that they are given to.

Before your next ROTC program starts, consider ordering custom challenge coins.  We can help you determine the size, shape, style, and colors that your coins should be.  We can even give your direction as to what images and text to use.  Visit for inspiration.  You can also call 1-800-252-0904 or email today for a free price quote and full color digital proof.
