    This is probably an older version of the ribbons the schools gave out at swim meets. We used to give out lots of ribbons for our four school swim meets, though they were a slightly different style than this one. The event was on the ribbon and after the places were announced by the volunteer score keeper students could go get their ribbons, Blue for first, Red for second, White for third. I used to have to fill them out for each of our events on the meets BHS sponsored. My son who swam for four years had a pile of these.
