Awards, Contests, and Scholarships
I Can Be Recognized? That’s right! Every Key Clubber has some chance to be acknowledged for their hard work throughout the year. You can receive recognition for things like: Doing an outstanding job as an officer. Participating in major projects. Raising a large amount of service hours. Participating in contests. Don’t forget about your adults! Think your Sponsoring Kiwanis Club, Kiwanis Advisor, or Faculty Advisor is amazing? Applications can be turned in for them to be recognized also!
Definition of a Service Hour It is important to know the District’s approved definition of a service hour because if you report hours incorrectly, you may be disqualified from awards that use hours in their criteria.
What Counts as a Service Hour? Projects pre-approved or organized exclusively by the individual Key Club Any project that contributes to the overall betterment of the community Book drives, food drives, or any other drive benefitting others (the service is the actual time worked to collect, count, package, plan, and/or deliver the objects) Time spent planning for a project. Serving as a host club at District Convention (actual time worked, not time attending convention) When reporting hours on Pride Reports or applications for awards, only hours worked by dues paid members of that Key Club can be recorded. No outside volunteers can count towards these hours.
What Doesn’t Count as a Service Hour? Attendance at DCMs, KCKCs, Zone Rallies, DCON, and ICON (Exception: when a service project is done at this event, only the time spent doing the project counts.) Club and board meetings. Socials or church services (attending worship services, etc) Anything considered to be a chore or that is supposed to be done Fundraisers for the individual Key Club’s own use (Example: raising money to have an end of the year banquet or to attend DCON) Time spent not working during overnight service projects (eating, sleeping, etc) Providing transportation for members or time spent going to and from a service project NOTE: Clubs may award additional hours for incentive purposes or purposes for their own records, however they must not be reported to the District as Key Club service hours.
