2019-20 VOD/PP/TA

Gift package for 2020 - Some ideas for the new chairman.   Pick best choices to fit budget.


The School Plaques were not ordered in time for 2019 ceremonies - perhaps they can be included in the 2020 school year awards.  Funds were allocated for the 2019 package but not spent.  Perhaps this year there will be sufficient time where the plaques  can be complete with engraved  name plates. 

-  Certificate and Holder for top three  $12.60  (we have these on hand.)
-  Cash award in red envelope with their name for top three  23,000 NT$
-  Ball Point Pen - for all participants - $20  from VFW store
-  Personalized 4 color pens (qty 75)  $175  -  from BIC
-  VOD/PP notebooks - $5.50 each X 6  =  $33  - from VFW store
-  Personalized USB stick - $225 for 25  - multiple suppliers
Or any combination of above.

Teachers Award-
          T/A Certificate and holder  (2)  - total  $11.90  

           Cash awards - total 9,000 NT$ (3,000 nt$ for each of the three schools)

           Award Plaque

Again, I emphasize, establish a reserve fund!    


Possible gift selections were accumulated and a list compiled for future reference.
Review and select according to budget.

If you didn't notice, one of the requirements is to submit entries on CD or Flash Drive - thus among my suggested gifts is a USB flash drive.  My thought is to provide the Teachers with several drives to give to the contestants if this is selected.  The students start off with an incentive.   See FLASH BAY quote below.




                    Example of suggested Fridge Magnet


Label with US flag or lower 48 states with VFW POST 9957 - but I can't find these cheap!  Need to look more.

From VFW Store



Look at 4Imprint quote for pens which is cheaper than VFW and labeled the way we want.



This is a trifold leather wallet with VFW logo - $14.95






This works out to approx. $4.71 a pen.


Locally made plaques should be better
