Pennsylvania for years has had mugs and tee shirts available for  
participants in the PAQP. 
PAQP charges for the stuff, so no significant costs are incurred by the  
sponsoring club.
I think either tee shirts or hats would be a better choice. They tend to  get 
worn in public at places like hamfests, where others see them and get some  
advertising exposure for MiQP (or whoever). I still have and occasionally wear 
a  hat from a Texas QSO Party circa 1996.
Mugs tend to sit in cupboards.

I  agree with Dave's comments about increasing activity at the grass roots  
level.  I don't think some additional incentive would hurt,  though.  The 
ARRL SS Coffee mugs, pins and brooms come to mind, and,  doesn't the League 
require the recipient to pay for their own mug or  pin?  That type of 
arrangement would keep MRRC from having to put up  the $$ for the awards.

Perhaps offering some sort of trinket for  achieving certain "milestones" 
(working WAS during the contest, for  example) might entice people to not 
only get on for the contest, but to  stay on for the duration.
