Prize
A prize is an award to be given to a person, a group of people like a sports team, or organization to recognise and reward actions or achievements.[1] Official prizes often involve monetary rewards as well as the fame that comes with them. Some prizes are also associated with extravagant awarding ceremonies, such as the Academy Awards. Prizes are also given to publicize noteworthy or exemplary behaviour, and to provide incentives for improved outcomes and competitive efforts. In general, prizes are regarded in a positive light,[1] and their winners are admired. However, many prizes, especially the more famous ones, have often caused controversy and jealousy. Specific types of prizes include:Booby prize: typically awarded as a joke or insult to whoever finished last (e.g., wooden spoon award). Consolation prize: an award given to those who do not win, but still (at least) recognized. Hierarchical prizes, where the best award is "first prize", "grand prize", or "gold medal"

Bayerische Akademie Der Schönen Künste
A German Academie is a school or college, trade school or another educational institution. The word Akademie (unlike the words Gymnasium or Universität) is not protected by law and any school or college may choose to call itself Akademie. A Sommerakademie (Summer Akademie) is a programme that teaches different groups of children or grown-ups usually during the summer month. Sometimes those programmes are remedial in nature. Origin of the word[edit] The word Akademie derives from the Platonic Academy, which was located near the bosk of Akademos.[1] Examples of Akademies[edit] Akademie deutsches Bäckerhandwerk Weinheim[2] Akademie für musische Bildung und Medienerziehung[3] Akademie der Künste[4] Akademie der bildenden Künste[5][6][7]References[edit]^ D.
