End of the Year Awards - Kids' Choice Awards

Our school has quarterly awards ceremonies to honor students with perfect attendance, honor roll, citizenship, etc., but I wanted to do something a little different for the end of the year.  When I saw this Kids' Choice Awards from Teaching With Crayons and Curls on Instagram I knew this is exactly what I wanted to do for my end of year awards/celebration.

End of the Year Kids Choice Awards- Red Version

The kids had an absolute blast as well!

We decorated our sad end of the year room with balloons (from Dollar Tree) and a red carpet (bulletin board paper).
One of the students wrote this on the board to kick us off.  I need to work on apostrophes apparently, but I have the same kiddos next year, so we have time! LOL!
The packet comes with pages for the students to vote for each other.  I asked them to vote for one of their classmates for each category.  The top nominees were then tallied by some of my fast finishers, and checked by me to make sure that each student received an award from their peers.  They really took the voting seriously and even had a few spirited debates.  I loved the time and thought they put into it.
In keeping with the Kids' Choice theme, I also had them run the show during the "ceremony".  Each student chose an award to give out.  I purchased small Dollar Tree items to go with each award.
The students really took their presenting jobs seriously and they were genuinely proud of each student award winner!
I really got a kick out of how on the spot their winner choices were!
This little one gave an acceptance speech!  Her category?
And, last but not least, my little fashionista who manages to look stylish even in uniform with her fabulous accessories and shoe changes! LOL!
If you are still in school and looking for some end of year fun - try a Kids' Choice Awards!
