Fun Cheerleading Award Ideas

Best All-Around

    There is one person on every squad who seems to shine. She's the one who gives her all each time she puts on the uniform, and displays school spirit off the field as well. Recognize that special person with a best all-around award.

Camp themes

    If you are having a cheerleading camp, tie your awards in with your camp theme. Hold an '80's theme camp where the cheerleaders wear '80's style clothes and perform cheers to '80's music. Give our prizes consistent with the theme, such as PacMan T-shirts, glow bracelets and neon colors. Match the prizes with the category--for example, give the glow bracelets to the cheerleader with the brightest smile.


    Have cheerleaders compete against each other for their awards. Organize a field day and give out awards for the longest handstand, the highest kick or the lowest split. Hold carnival-type games and make the competition fun for everyone.
