Solange,

I've only heard of booby prize, and that would be a prize given to a person (or team too) that is the worst, the last one in a competition, game or contest.

 

booby (pronounced /bu:bi/) is informal for a silly, stupid, or slow-on-the-uptake person.

 

I've never heard of bobbing prize, really. Would that be a different kind of prize?

 

Rick
