2019 Signature Project Contest


Signature projects show the impact a Kiwanis club can have on a community. From playgrounds and parks to festivals and fundraisers, signature projects are the hallmarks of what Kiwanis clubs are known for in their communities.  

Kiwanis International will again sponsor the Signature Project Recognition Program for districts in 2019. Ten finalists will be selected and the top three selections will be recognized as the gold, silver and bronze winners at the 2019 Kiwanis International Convention.  

Every district may submit one club-level project. It's up to the district leadership to decide which project should be submitted. Entries are due by noon EST Monday, March 4, 2019. District secretaries will receive a code that allows them to make the online submission. Only one submission per district will be allowed, and all districts are encouraged to participate.

The Kiwanis International Board Committee on Public Relations, Image and Marketing will review qualifying submissions and select ten finalists. The finalists will be recognized at the Kiwanis International convention where the three top winners will be announced and awarded. Finalists will be notified of their selection in time to take advantage of discounted convention registration rates.

What is a signature project?
Think about what your Kiwanis club is known for in your community. It can be a service project, event or fundraiser. Signature projects:

  • Are recurring. (Note: A new project can qualify as a signature project if the intent is to continue the project.)

  • Enhance the Kiwanis brand

  • Demonstrate significant impact on the community in terms of monies raised or children served

  • Strengthen membership and partnership opportunities

While the district should determine how to select its club-level submission, the project should follow the criteria outlined here.

Once your district has selected its representative club-level signature project, your district secretary or designate will receive an access code allowing them to enter the contest. Entries are due by 5 p.m. EST Monday, March 4, 2019. See the questions asked on the online form.
