Playing music for trophies is a way to kill someones joy and passion for music, This is often done by parents thinking that its good to force their child to play an instrument, Playing an instrument should be a child's initiative. Competitions are often just pouring salt in the wound.
Do you like to play music for fun or for a stupid trophy i like to for fun not for a stupid trophy. No trophies is perfect. I don't like it when other kids are bad and get a stupid trophy the ones who are good should get one not the ones who are bad
