    In recognition of / recognition of / recognized

    Hi,

    Question:
    Which of the following sentence can convey the idea that I want to convey?


    Sentence1:

    I obtained the XYZ prize.
    This is in recognition of my hard working.
    Sentence2:
    I obtained the XYZ prize.
    This is recognition of my hard working.
    Sentence3:
    I obtained the XYZ prize.
    This recognized my hard working.


    The idea that I want to convey:
    I was awarded the XYZ prize in recognition of my hard work.

    Thanks

    Re: In recognition of / recognition of / recognized

    Your explanatory sentence says it perfectly.

    If you were to use any of the others, your would say "my work", not "my working".
