It's not just the cost of the plaques or trophies or awards, and depending on the location, those costs might not be as inexpensive as you think. If sponsors are paying for the awards, they might not be pleased if a category that they chose were to suddenly disappear due to lack of participation. Also, time and effort is expended by members of the host club. Display space must be allocated for the category. Most venues do have limited space; to have a sudden void due to the elimination of a category can cause confusion and ruffled feathers. If you have ever participated in hosting a show, you'll understand.
