2022 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 host the Sixth Annual Signature Project Recognition Program for clubs and districts in 2022. Clubs with 27 members or fewer will be judged in the Tier I category. Clubs with 28 members or more will be judged in Tier II category. Each tier will be judged separately and the top 10 finalists will be determined for each tier. The top three selections from each tier will be recognized as the gold, silver and bronze winners at the 2022 Kiwanis International Convention

Clubs should submit their project details using the online contest submission form from a link that will be made available. Each club’s entry will be sent to their district leadership for judging and selection of their Tier I and Tier II projects that will be entered into the 2022 Signature Project Contest.

The Kiwanis International Board Committee on Service and Partnerships will review qualifying submissions and select the finalists. The finalists will be recognized at the 2022 Kiwanis Convention where the top winners will be announced and receive awards. Finalists will be notified of their selection in time to take advantage of any discounted early 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 or a 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 image.
  • 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 Tier I and Tier II submissions, the project should follow the criteria outlined here.

The contest opens at midnight ET on Sunday, January 9, 2022. Entries are due at midnight ET on Sunday, January 30, 2022.
