English term or phrase:present
Although this was an internal accolade, The Mayor of Craigavon presented the award to XXX during an Open day which was held at the start of September. Guests included suppliers, local Council Members and Politicians, local community groups, business groups including the BITC who are responsible for the ARENA Environmental Award and the press.
I don't understand if this "presented" means to award someone or just show this award. Thanks!
It depends on who XXX is!! Chances are high from the context given, that it means 'award' and XXX is the recipient. But there would also be a slim chance of this sentence structure meaning 'show' if, for ex., XXX was one of the main sponsors of the award.
