The Webster Trophy and the Webster Medallion
The Webster Trophy itself was designed by the renowned Canadian sculptor Robert Tait MacKenzie (1867-1938). It is a beautiful bronze figure of the mythical Greek god, Icarus, and symbolically represents youth and flight. The Trophy is prominently displayed at the Aviation & Space Museum in Ottawa who generously make it available for the symbolic presentation to the winner at the annual Webster Memorial Trophy Presentation Banquet.
