District 7680 – Service Awards for 2016-2017

Clubs must apply for all Service Awards. These are to recognize projects started and completed in the Rotary year from July 1, 2016 through April 1, 2017.  All requests for Service Awards must be submitted by April 1, 2017.  A small club is 1-49 members; large club is 50+ members as of July 1.

CLUB SERVICE AWARD:  Awarded to one small club and one large club
Club service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the effective functioning of the club. This includes such items as, attendance at meetings and district events, programs, fellowship/social activities, public relations, recruiting, retention, member recognition, sergeant-at- arms, family of the club Rotarians with related activities, and Rotary Knowledge programs. Your Club Bulletin will also be considered in the qualification for this award.

In addition, each club’s website will be evaluated. It is becoming increasingly desirable for each club to have a Facebook Fan Page (not a group page) to alert the public of activities within the clubs and also to attract new Rotarians. For both the club webpage and the Facebook page, recent activity and frequency of information will be evaluated. To qualify, each club should submit a summary of their Club Service Project(s), their club bulletins (minimum of 4 from the year), their webpage address, and Facebook page address to the District Conference Awards Committee.

COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARD: Awarded to one small club and one large club
Rotary’s purpose is to serve others through efforts to improve the community, to promote high ethical standards and to promote understanding and goodwill. Each Rotary Club determines its own projects and activities to meet local circumstances and needs. These benefit youth, the disabled, and the elderly and meet a broad range of other civic, social, cultural, and environmental needs. However, Rotary Club projects can be as diverse as the many communities in which clubs are located. Each club should study its community, identify its problems and needs, and work to solve them.  To qualify, each club should submit a summary of their Community Service Project(s) to the District Conference Awards Committee.

INTERNATIONAL SERVICE AWARD: Awarded to one small club and one large club
The “Advancement of International Understanding, Goodwill and Peace through a world of fellowship of business and professional people united in the ideal of service” is the goal of International Service. World Community Service (WCS) consists of activities within International Service in which Rotarians conduct projects to improve lives and meet human needs, and thus promote international understanding and goodwill by means of materials, technical and professional assistance.  To qualify, each club should submit a summary of their International Service Project(s) to the District Conference Awards Committee.

VOCATIONAL SERVICE AWARD: Awarded to one small club and one large club

Within the Rotary World an individual Rotarian’s vocation is extremely important. Rotary’s purpose is to serve others through efforts to improve their vocation, to promote high ethical standards and to promote understanding and goodwill. Each Rotary Club determines its own projects and activities to meet local circumstances and needs. Rotary club projects can be as diverse as the many communities and vocations represented by each member of the club. Each club should study the vocations represented in their communities, identify the problems and needs and work to solve them.  To qualify, each club should submit a summary of their Vocational Service Project(s) to the District Conference Awards Committee.

YOUTH SERVICE AWARD: Awarded to one small club and one large club
Youth Service recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults through leadership development activities, involvement in community and international service projects, and exchange programs that enrich and foster world peace and cultural understanding.   To qualify, each club should submit a summary of their Youth Service Project(s) to the District Conference Awards Committee.

DISTINGUISHED ROTARIAN AWARD:
Each of the clubs in District 7680 has the opportunity to honor a member of their club for distinguished service as a Rotarian. The award should be presented to a Rotarian who has exemplified “Service Above Self” in his/her daily life as a Rotarian and a member of his/her community. This award should be chosen by your club prior to submission to the district. Distinguished Rotarians are encouraged to attend the District Conference where we will hold a special reception for the recipients.  Each club selects a Distinguished Rotarian from their membership on and shall submit that name with supporting documentation.
