A trophy is a tangible, durable reminder of a specific achievement, and serves as recognition or evidence of merit. Part of what makes Stone Mountain Highland Games special, are the trophies. Winning a trophy at SMHG shows the achievement of the competitor's hard work and dedication to their heritage. In addition, it serves as a reminder of that special win they have for a lifetime.
