First we make a list of awards. I type the list, leave a blank, and put a class list at the bottom. Then I copy one for each student and they put a friend's name next to each award. Then I tally them all up and assign each award to a student.
So...when the day gets closer, we arrange committees. (Kids to all the hosting/talking/etc during ceremony...have a I mentioned I avoid talking in large groups whenever possible!!!)
Greeters-Make programs, meet people at door and hand out programs
Lighting team-Lights on/off, moves projector to proper place, and pulls down screen
Decorating Team-does all the design/decorating for the day (completely kid done:-)
