Try your local YMCA or Park and Recreation. They may be able to reuse the trophy or maybe your local engraving shop could tell you where to donate them. (05/26/2008)
We donated our Bowling trophies to the junior bowling league. (05/27/2008)
Call your local County Extension office. As a 4-H Leader and member and officer of several rabbit clubs, we love donated trophies! Plates are easily removed and new ones added onto the recycled trophy. Another idea, post on your local freecycle ( www.freecycle.org ) someone on their might be able to point you to a specific group or organization in your area that needs them! (05/27/2008)
Try your local elementary school or high school. We reuse curling trophies for our school bonspiels. also some places do as has been mentioned, they swap out the top of the trophy to match the activity they are doing.
We live in a small town and my mom runs an activity afternoon for kids at the summer sports day. She uses donated trophies for her races, sunflower spit event, ball throw, etc. (05/27/2008)
All neat ideas. If you hate to part with them but have to. Take pictures of them for your brag book. Here you can keep them and show them off to your grandkids. Add news write-ups and you have a family history book. Now you can donate them to someone to enjoy or craft with. (05/28/2008)

I read somewhere that you can take the inters out and make a lamp out of them. Someone did this for the son from one of dads' trophies. Cool idea I think. (05/28/2008)
