There are six Nobel prizes awarded every year to people throughout the world and of course various other prizes are awarded nationally. Can you think of any other prize category? What would you like to honour people for? A prize for the most inventive idea? The oddest theory? The most progress towards extra-terrestrial colonies? A prize for music, not just literature? A prize for the best virtual world?
Or do you think any system of prizes is absurd and unfair? Should we stop honouring individuals? “What’s honour? Who hath it? He that died o’.” Is that how you feel?
