End of Year classroom awards

The end of the year is approaching and I always give out classroom 'fun' awards before we attend the All School Awards Day. These are along the line of 'OOps I forgot..', Best singer, Turtle Award and Miss Congenality, to name a few. Does anyone have suggestions for other Award Titles? I feel that I'm in a rut and could use some new ideas!

Candy Awards

I use www.teachingheart.net and use their candy award list as a guideline for creative awards for my students. When I get stuck, I go stand in the candy isle at the drugstores and come up with other awards. Here are a couple that I have used. . .
*Good and Plenty: Read good and plenty of books
*Butterfinger: broken arm
*Almond Joy: Always being joyful
*Snickers: Able to make others snicker/laugh
*Kit Kat: At the teachers side
