    Are you sure that's how the kids feel? When I was younger even if the adults weren't keeping track of who was winning we often were.

    I totally disagree. Participation trophies are handed out to the kids when they are very young. They don't even keep score in the games they play in. These trophies are very important to most children. They don't care if they one or lost, but they know they had fun playing that year and the trophy is a reminder of that.
