North Texas youth football league stops awarding participation trophies

The Keller Youth Association will no longer be giving out participation trophies. Starting next spring players, as young as 5 years old, will only receive a trophy only if they are league champions.

Some parents say it's not about what's on the scoreboard, it's about rewarding hard work. Others say it's teaching students a good life lesson. You have to work hard for what you get.
