If I show at a local event, I've never expected a prize of any sort. The win slip is fine. However, if it's an advertised event that someone wants folks to maybe have to travel for, it's nice to win something especially if the entry fee is $20 or $25.
Lesson I've learned though...if you win a prize that a club says they will mail to you, don't expect to get it LOL. I won a state championship last year (my first one) and don't even have a little plaque to commemorate the occasion. Showed 3 dogs at $20 a pop, you have to figure I paid for the trophy that was supposedly being mailed to me with just my entry fees. I did get a $25 bag of dog food...didn't have to buy feed for the deer dogs that week! LOL. Life goes on, and in the scheme of things trophies are just something else to dust and clean around. But a child or younger person might be upset about something like that.
I like the idea of the engraved knives and such! My brother in law runs a trophy shop, and had put some photos of an engraved pocket knife on their Facebook page the other day. I believe the machine they use could even do logos and such. That would be a pretty neat prize, for hunt OR show. Some of the all-breed shows have given coolers with the event won on them too...that's also something that would be useful for a show or hunt winner.
