Thread: for or to

    Smile for or to


    I'd like to help me to understand the following sentence which I found in the text book.
    #1 A prize will be given for the best performance.
    I cannot understand why "for" is used in "for the best performance."
    I think it should be "to the best performance like #2.
    #2 A prize will be given to the best performance.
    Are the meaning of #1 and #2 different?
    I would be happy if I got some explanation.

    Thank you.
