Proposal 10: Equitable Awards [ Revision 2 ]Committee: Main Committee
Submitted on 2016-11-30
Status: Passed on December 19, 2016
An effort to make awards as equitable as possible.
The type, number, and quality of awards are the choice of the convention host. Because awards are paid for out of the convention budget, the host may determine the amount and level of those awards. Generally there are trophies for“top” events, medals for “subtop” events, and ribbons or certificates for lower events or places. The IUF has most frequently awarded 1st-3rd place in most events, but this too is up to the convention host.
Because awards are paid for out of the convention budget, the type, number, and quality of awards are the choice of the convention host. However, these awards must abide to these stipulations:
- male and female competitors must be awarded equitably
- Standard Class and Unlimited Class competitors must be awarded equitably within the same competition (ie. 10k Standard and 10k Unlimited)
- awards should be equal within the ranks of Teams, Age Groups, and Champions (ie. 0-14 in Freestyle must be awarded equitably to 16-17 Muni Cross Country)
Generally there are trophies for Champions or for 1st-3rd places in finals, medals for 1st-3rd places in each Age Group for each event, and optionally ribbons or certificates for lower places. The IUF has most frequently awarded 1st-3rd place in most events, but this too is up to the convention host. Once the competition has finished, a personal certificate must be made available to each competitor with a summary of their complete results. This can be done as an online download, and/or sent through e-mail, and/or made available as a physical copy on the event itself.The design of the certificates is up to the convention host.
The consensus was that awards should be equitable between gender, class, and category.
