We did a Silly Olympics as a combined activity, and I got a bunch of cheap gold-colored medals from the party favors section at Walmart, and spray painted some of them silver, and some...well, it was more red than bronze, but the youth didn't seem to mind. We had an awards ceremony where we gave out medals for each event, and you'd have thought they were real - the youth seemed so excited to get them. Not very creative, but simple, especially if you have to do a bunch. The nice thing was that we had a few group events, so everyone got at least a couple medals (we only had two countries - the US and Brazil).
