Renfrewshire Council Provost Celia Lawson and former Provost John McDowall have teamed up to launch the award to recognise the school that has made the biggest achievement in promoting the organisation and its aims.
Fairtrade tries to ensure better prices, decent working conditions and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world.
A number of schools throughout the region have achieved Fairtrade status.
The trophy will be awarded annually and aims to further encourage schools and young people to get involved in Fairtrade.
Provost Lawson said: "Trinity High in Renfrew became the first secondary in Scotland to become a Fairtrade school. This has been followed by others, including St Fillan's Primary and, most recently, Gryffe High.
"In fact, it is often the younger generation who have led the way in encouraging parents, friends and relatives to support worthwhile causes."
