We believe that a story driven by an individual, authentic voice can awaken new ideas that have the power to delight, entertain and keep you awake, push creative boundaries, spark new levels of empathy and understanding, and even lead to social change. We support independent storytellers and advance the impact of their work in the world.

The heavy, solid feel combined with an elegant design make for a truly magnificent trophy. These prestigious trophies come personalized engraved text on crystal. This award is to recognize top performers and star players.
