    Podium Girl? Ambassador? How do we call them?

    In a prize presentation, there are usually some students [e.g. presentations at school] or ladies [e.g. presentations for the champions in a race] simply take the trophies or certificates and the like to the guests/principals, whoever presenting the prizes - the prize presenters (is that the right term?). Then, they retreat to the prize table and ready to take the next prize to the presenters.

    HOW do we call these people? The facilitator? The Podium girl? The ambassador? Any others terms or phrases to refer to these people specifically?

    Very Many Thanks

    I would call them aides or assistants.

    Tedwonny, you need to ask 'What do we call them?'

    The MC at a typical event would probably call her "my lovely assistant."
