all should get positive recognition, which doesn't have to be a trophy. Each brought a gift to the team that can be recognized with a certificate where cost is just printing a page

No. Adversity builds character. If they don't get a trophy, they'll get over it. Besides, giving trophies to everyone cheapens the trophies for the achievers.
