How to use "Booby prize" in context?

When most people hear the term "booby prize," they likely think of a small, inexpensive award given to kids in a candy store as they leave on a school field trip. In fact, the term "booby prize" can be used in a much broader sense, and can refer to anything - from a large sum of money to a prestigious award - that is awarded as a token of appreciation, rather than as a goal in and of itself.

The reason why booby prizes are so popular is that they are something that both the receiver and the donor can accepts gracefully.
