I don't believe that the plaques listed are the only ones possible. Think up a good plaque program targeted to the competitive characteristics of your area and sponsor it! Take a look at the CQ WW program for special plaque examples. The Western WA DX Club sponsors high-score plaques for Japan, for example.
Reiterating my occasional exhortation to foster (ferment?) regional competition - if the contest sponsors are maxed out on categories and awards, sponsor your own!
