SHOU


meaning: manifest, openly acknowledge

表彰 == hyoushou == (noun)  public acknowledgment, public recognition, commendation, awarding
表彰状 == hyoushoujou == (noun) testimonial, certificate of commendation

Right radical is 'delicate hairs', here meaning 'attractive decoration'. Left radical is 'badge' (章), meaning 'attractive pattern' here. This character originally meant 'attractive decorative pattern'. It came to mean 'display something attractive', and eventually meanings related to 'display' in general. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Open acknowledge badge has three hairs on it.'
