National trophy ideas, please?

We are setting up a new competition and we would like to add a perpetual trophy for National.

We would like to make it something special, so not just any old trophy, but something that rather represents the National dances/Aboyne etc.

We had been thinking of a shield with a plaid brooch (such as worn by pipebands because those are larger than dancers' brooches), but even those brooches are still only about 2-3 inches across.

Any ideas?

What about having the shield so it can be hung on the wall and has space around the brooch so each year a photo of the winner in her aboyne costume (or his trews) can be added to it? So it ends up sort of like a photo collage after a few years and shows all the different tartans and aboyne styles. Very cool that you are thinking outside the box :)

I would say "it would be neat if the brooch was removable so the winning dancer could wear it for that year," but it would exclude male dancers and the brooch would probably be lost in short order anyway...
