Rewards of Merit.

These 3 images hail from a local favorite of mine, the Rhode Island Historical Society blog: A Lively Experiment. They have some brief-yet-informative copy about rewards of merit that is worth a peek. They also give props to the Ephemera Society of America:

The best source for learning more about rewards of merit is a publication by the Ephemera Society of America: Rewards of Merit: Tokens of a Child’s Progress and a Teacher’s Esteem as an Enduring Aspect of American Religious and Secular Education.

The following images were found via Flickr and link back to their original sources.

I became so side tracked by the collection that this item came from. You should certainly stop by this user’s page for more delicious Americana, ephemera, and vexillogical goodness.
