I recently won the "Best Student Paper" award at a moderately significant conference in my field (subfield of CS). This came with a Trophy and a Certificate. The trophy I will put in the corner of my the lab, and use for motivation. But I don't know what to do with the certificate.
What should I be doing with the certificate? Do I need to save it to prove to someone later my paper did actually get the award? Surely they can look it up online.
I am generally opposed to the hoarding of documents -- I strive to minimise the number of physical possessions I have.
So I was kinda thinking of just using it as scrap paper...
