Should every kid get a trophy just for participating?

SportzEdge laughing

Our SportzView panel takes a look at whether or not every child should get a trophy just for participating.

What do you think? Do you remember the trophies as much as you do the experience? Do you think that a little positive reinforcement is good for everyone, or should we teach our kids that you are rewarded for standing out, rather than being average?
