Pride of Workmanship Awards

Each year the club calls for nominations from the community of people who give that little extra in the performance of their jobs, it may be that little bit of extra help to customers, it might be for pride in their jobs.

This year the presentation night will be on Tuesday 28th November 2017. Nominations can be made on the form available from Vocational Service Director Joe Cauchi and must be made no later than 14th November 2017.

Each nominee will receive an engraved plaque, dinner for them and a partner. If you nominate someone for this award you must be in a position to attend the function on the night when the award is presented. This award can be a great way to show appreciation to an employee or co-worker.

 

INSPIRATIONAL YOUTH AWARDS

Helping Youth to Achieve

Many young people have the talent to make the world a better place, but not all have the opportunity.

In 2017-18 we ask the clubs to nominate an individual from their area, or young people they become aware of who exhibit the spark to make a difference but are held back by their circumstances. Some youth do not have the opportunity to shine because they do not have the privileges that others have so we ask Clubs to identify those individuals and forward them to myself as the District Governors Partner.

The criteria for the awards are:

  • Age categories; 14 – 16 years & 17 – 19 years
  • Applicants from; Community Groups, Youth Groups & all Educational Organisations
  • Their Socio- economic situation
  • Contribution to communities
  • Their ability to “make the world a better place”
  • Commitment and enthusiasm to a cause

 

Nominee applications will open 1st September 2017 and close 16th March 2018

(Download available on District Website: www.rotarydistrict9675.org)

Let’s make a difference in 2017-18 and provide young people with an opportunity to make the world a better place.
