We believe that giving back to our community is one of the most important things we can do. Since the day we opened our doors, we have looked for ways to contribute to the growth of Tallahassee and the recognition of its amazing individuals, businesses and organizations.

Achievement Medallion Program

Rickards MedallionAwards4U created the Achievement Medallion Program to recognize students whose achievements often go uncelebrated at typical academic and athletic awards ceremonies. We hope to empower Tallahassee’s youth and make our community, and world, a better place by recognizing students for simply doing their best.

“We’ve seen everything from a student that saved a life with CPR, to a high schooler living in his car but still making the honor roll. It really opens your eyes.” – Sam Varn, Owner & CEO

Since 1987, we have helped local schools recognize more than 10,000 student accomplishments of every shape and size. Currently, we partner with all of Leon County’s public high schools to provide unique Achievement Medallion Programs: Chiles, Rickards, Godby and Lincoln.

Awards4U guides the program from nominations to presentation, including assisting teachers, printing programs and certificates, creating custom medallions and proving a continental breakfast at the awards banquet. We also assist with awards presentation when needed. All these services are provided to schools completely free of cost.
