I was wondering if there was a specific word for this particular type of plaque/award? It's given to college graduates, to commemorate and represent their degree. I think it's mostly just called award/plaque, but I was looking for a better word to describe this particular object. Thank you!
Interesting, I have never seen something like that here in the U.S. Usually we just get a diploma for graduating. You might call this a trophy- that’s a 3D award for something that stands up on its own- usually in the shape of a cup but not always. I think a plaque would be more flat and something you’d hang on the wall.
