Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams is not a fan of participation ribbons.

Williams posted on Twitter Wednesday that his daughter Rhiya received a participation ribbon at her school's field day.

The 2009 Pro Bowler wasn't satisfied with her being rewarded for participating in a competition, so he returned the ribbon to her teacher.

So what happened next?

Williams says Rhiya finished in first place in her next event.

He posted a photo that shows the little girl smiling with three ribbons - one for first place, two for third place - pinned to her T-shirt.

He's not the first Steeler to take such action. Linebacker James Harrison took to social media last year to rail against the "participation" trophies given to his sons. 

Let us know what you think about participation ribbons and trophies in the comments!
