District Level Contests
All district level contests submissions should be mailed to the District Office by March 1, 2015. Only clubs that attend the convention are eligible to submit entries and win awards.
DISTRICT PROJECT AWARD
The Carolinas District continues to support the Boys and Girls Home at Lake Waccamaw as its District Project. This award is given to the top three clubs that have rendered the most meaningful service to this organization. Submissions are not judged by basis of monetary value given to the organization, but by all around project value as to service rendered, money raised and club member involvement. Please note that this project may NOT be the same as the Single Service Project. The report form is enclosed in this packet. First, second, and third place awards will be given, regardless of club size. A contest submission form is included in this packet.
KIWANIS FAMILY RELATIONS AWARD
It is important to our organization for all members of our Kiwanis Family to work together. To recognize those clubs that excel in Kiwanis Family relations, the Carolinas District Board created the Kiwanis-Family Relations Award. If your club activity works with Kiwanis, Circle K, or Builders Clubs, then submit your report in this category. Only activities that occur from district convention to district convention shall be included. A contest submission form is included in this packet.
OUTSTANDING KIWANIS ADVISOR
Once again, this year the Carolinas District will recognize a single Kiwanis member for his or her outstanding service to the Key Club program. The nomination must be made by the Key Club president from the club of which the Kiwanian is an advisor or a member of the Carolinas District Key Club Board. The recipient will be evaluated on his or her ability to work with students, consistency and quality of overall performance as an advisor, and overall feelings towards this person by club members. A nomination form is included in this packet.
OUTSTANDING FACULTY ADVISOR
The Carolinas District will recognize an outstanding Key Club faculty advisor at the convention. This award is given to a single individual who has offered exemplary service as a club advisor. The nomination must be made by the Key Club president from the club of which the faculty member is an advisor or a member of the Carolinas District Key Club Board. A nomination form is included in this packet.
Individuals or club groups may audition for the talent contest. An entry may take any form as long as it is entertaining and in good taste. Only one act from any one school can enter. The top acts (number to be determined at the convention), selected in preliminary judging, will perform at the talent session on Saturday night. Awards will be given to the first, second, and third place acts, as well as a Most Entertaining award.

Each participant will be given 60 minutes to write an essay on a subject selected by the Carolinas District Administrator during a designated time during convention.
