Hi Dan
I do like the analogy and simplicity of Tom Sawyer. But would this be more about the work than about the award?

In the fence, Tom provides intrinsic motivation for them to want the opportunity to do the work. Awards are more tapping into extrinsic motivation (in most common designs at least).

What's your perspective on how this impacts the story?
