They were then offered  to schools where teachers were encouraged to use them to reward students for participating in athletic activities related to the Olympic Games.   Court said his research showed that Canadian school children had little knowledge about Canada’s top international athletes or what it meant to represent Canada at the Olympic Games.  He had a tough time getting internal approval for the project which won the 1977 Educational award from the Canadian Public Relations Society.
