2018 SIGNATURE PROJECT CONTEST WINNERS 

 

Kiwanis members change the world — one child and one community at a time. From playgrounds and parks to festivals and fundraisers, signature projects are the hallmarks of what Kiwanis clubs are known for in their communities.

For the second year, Kiwanis International held a Signature Project Recognition Program and Contest to celebrate the great work being done by clubs. The program showcases the many club-level projects Kiwanians undertake around the world to make a difference in communities. Members of the Kiwanis International Board Subcommittee-Communications reviewed qualifying submissions and chose the winners. The top three winners were announced and recognized during the Kiwanis International convention. (See the contest details.)
