Medals, Trophies, and Ribbons! Oh My!!!

Creator(s): New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame

Medals, ribbons and trophies are so important markers that record the facts of a person's life, and these awards often become the only remaining physical evidence of an athlete's record. Created for the heroes and heroines of the day, they document the important details of an award winning event while recognizing the substantial community and business investment in sport. Medals, trophies and ribbons are also a reflection of the views, fashions and technology of the periods in which they were awarded and they are a potent symbol of the role which sports play in our culture and society.

In Medals, Trophies, and Ribbons! Oh My! you will find a sampling of the awards earned by eighteen Honoured Members of the New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame while competing at home and abroad.
