Community organizations and government agencies give awards for all kinds of reasons. The awards could be given to kids for winning the state baseball tournament. They can be given to a particularly gifted volunteer. Whatever the reason, in order to get these awards, trophies, plaques & medallions made the organization will typically release a RFP. The RFP title might contain more specific information as to whether or not they are looking for trophies or medals, what kind of trophy they are looking for, etc… A few examples could be a RFP with the title baseball trophy RFP, plaque RFP or even medallion RFP. In any event, the RFP itself will have all the particulars regarding the contract. Some town or government agencies would even like to contract a particular business for several months or years even. If you make trophies or awards, start looking for RFP.
