Im designing an award certificate but not sure how to word it.

Option 1. Certificate of Entrepreneur of the year.

vs.

Option 2. Certificate for the Entrepreneur of the year.

Do I write "Certificate of" or "Certificate for". Can someone help pls.

    As it would be self evident that it was a certificate, I suggest you stick to: Entrepreneur of the Year – Ronald Sole Jan 24 '19 at 11:16

They can both be used. But notice:

Certificate of the Entrepreneur of the Year

This sounds as if certificate and entrepreneur of the year are the same entity.

Certificate for the Entrepreneur of the Year

This one sounds as if certificate and entrepreneur of the year are different entities, different subjects.

Therefore, I'd advise you to use for.

  • Much thx. Appreciate it. – Seema Sharma Jan 24 '19 at 11:02
  • Can you have 2 "the" in the same sentence..like...certificate for THE entrepreneur of THE year? – Seema Sharma Jan 24 '19 at 11:03
  • Yes, although it sounds redundant. It can be deduced from Entrepreneur of the year that there's only one. No need to specify it with an additional the. And could you please accept my answer? :) – krobelusmeetsyndra Jan 24 '19 at 11:29
