The Prime Minister’s Trophy
The Prime Minister’s Trophy, the symbol of the Popeyes Bahamas Bowl championship, is presented to the winning team after the game each year. It is a unique creation that represents the Commonwealth of the Bahamas in several ways.
Bahamas Prime Minister the Rt. Hon. Perry G. Christie helped present the 2015 championship trophy to Western Michigan, and to honor the country’s highest-elected office, the trophy was renamed The Prime Minister’s Trophy by the Popeyes Bahamas Bowl in 2016.
Designed and manufactured by Levy Marketing & Awards of Tampa, Florida in consultation with the bowl’s staff, the Popeyes Bahamas Bowl championship trophy stands 30 inches tall and weighs nearly 30 pounds.
The trophy has a tan Corian base that represents the sand and a pair of turquoise portions that represent the water. The trophy is mounted on black wood with black wood pillars used to support the football at the top of the trophy.
A conch shell, one of the main symbols of the Bahamas, is in the center of the base, and acrylic laser-cut palm trees adorn both sides of the pillars.
The Popeyes Bahamas Bowl logo is rendered in acrylic and mounted halfway up the trophy’s center.
The bowl also awards distinctive Offensive Player of the Game and Defensive Player of the Game trophies.
