Distinguished Club Award
The Distinguished Club Award program shall provide recognition to individual Key Clubs for their overall performance in the combined areas of club administration, membership and leadership development, Kiwanis family involvement, service and fund-raising as judged against a pre-established standard of excellence.
This award is based upon the score achieved on the Annual Club Achievement Report form. The minimum scores needed to be designated as a Distinguished Club or Distinguished Club-Diamond Level will be provided to the district administrator by Key Club International. Clubs approved as distinguished will receive a banner patch dispensed by the Pennsylvania District of Key Club International on behalf of Key Club International.
The deadline for the annual achievement report is February 28, 2018.
Note: Entries shall use the official Key Club International Annual Achievement Report form.
Over the years, the Pennsylvania District has seen many clubs and individuals enter the contests and unfortunately has seen a number of clubs and individuals be disqualified because of various award criteria. The following entry tips/eligibility checklist is to be used to help highlight some of the important contest criteria that has changed or is sometimes overlooked. It is to be used to assist you in your completion of entries, but does not substitute for the official criteria set in the Key Club International Guidebook.
