That's a fine opinion to hold....but there is a growing body of evidence that telling children they are great (when they aren't) is bad for them.

To be honest, I think it's more on the lines of what researchers say about it it how to praise kids, and to not stick to one way of encouragement. For example, when my brother was growing up, he didn't get any attention at all except for negative feedback. If he did a chore - so what, he was supposed to, so he had to sit his ass back down and not interrupt his parents while they were getting drunk. This led him to misbehaving to seek attention
When my dad dumped his girlfriend, he met his current wife who would praise my brother and tell him he was a "good boy," because he truly believed he wasn't because his nickname was "monster child." Due to this praise, he raised his self esteem, and now is congratulated on the work he does, not his traits. Currently, my grandmother is working with him in astronomy, and if he can remember the names of certain things, they will take him to an astronomy museum. I think it honestly depends on the child, and their personality, because some kids need the praise for their self esteem, but we shouldn't be afraid to give criticism along with it.

The whole point of the field day was to get kids moving, there hardly was much competition. Plus, we had decent funding then, so to give kids a ribbon more-so as a memento than a rewards was affordable. Our school was always more focused on academics than sports. We give out medals for reading a certain number of books read in a year, and decals on shirts for Accelerated Reading. In high school, if you are a senior who has gotten A's for two years in a certain field, you got a medal to wear at the graduation. Field day was really the only event that gave something to everybody.
