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 :)
