According to the CELCE-AFRICA boss, “Great achievements are accompanied by great results. Prizes/Plaques are given to the top achievers in fields ranging from sports to politics to science to writing etc. Though they take different forms, all of these prizes are meant to highlight and celebrate those individuals who’ve ascended to the top of their game”.
Whatever prestige attached to our awards, these prizes are often accompanied by striking custom awards Plaques with great designs”.
