    Default preposition usage

    Hello,

    I am not a teacher, but had a grammar question. When using the phrase, "in recognition..." is the proper preposition "of" or "for"? i.e., "in recognition of..." or "in recognition for ..."

    The SAT workbook site says that the proper usage for a similar phrase, "in appreciation..." is the preposition "for" but it does not address the phrase, "in recognition..." and I've seen it used both ways.

    Thank you.
