Politicians gonna politician, I guess.
Right now, there’s a bill in the North Carolina legislature that sets to end awarding trophies and ribbons for children that simply participate in sporting events and activities.
According to ABC affiliate, WPDE:
“State Sen. Timothy Moffitt introduced the bill where youth sports or other youth recreation activities operated under the authority of a local government shall not include awards for participants based solely on their participation in the sport or other activity,” the proposed law states. “Awards provided in connection with the activity, if any, shall be based on identified performance achievements.”
So basically, it’s looking to eliminate the awards if the activities are funded by the state government. And just like anything else, folks on social media gave their two cents.
Of all the more serious and more pressing issues that should be identified and addressed, this is what they came up with? It’s certainly on brand.
