ADDITIONAL AWARDS / RECOGNITION

THE CADWALLADER AWARD

This award is managed by a special committee of The Council of Governors.  Information and forms are found using the links on the left. The deadline is June 15.

 

OUTSTANDING INDIVIDUALS

The District Governor selects individuals for awards such as the Outstanding Club President, Outstanding District Chair, and District Leadership Award. These are not open to nomination.

 

THE ROTARY FOUNDATION AWARDS

The Rotary Foundation has created awards with very specific criteria.  Because of the limited eligibility, nominations are not generally accepted for these awards; instead they are recommended by current and past District Foundation Committee Members.
