Prizes and Awards
The Bracebridge Highland Games recognizes all the participants for their hard work and dedication. All morning dancers will recieve a goodie bag as a token of our appreciation. The Primary dancers will also receive a participation medal along with any and all medals that coincide with their placings. Like the primary dancers, all other categories are awarded up to six places in each group. The medals are handcrafted and are unique to the Town of Bracebridge and The Bracebridge Highland Games. Each group is also awarded an over-all trophy and a runner-up trophy. Prize money is given to the adult group, and if numbers warrant is also awarded to the second oldest age category.
