Recognition of Youth Award (ROYA)
Recognition of Youth Award (ROYA) is unique to Rotary District 9690. It was set up to mark the 75th anniversary year of Rotary International and has been concluded successfully since.
It seeks to identify involved, concerned young people of all round ability, already embarked upon community interests and conscious of opportunities to participate in a wide range of interest groups.
The contest is divided into two sections: Senior 17 – 19 years and Junior 13 – 16 years with winners being recognised by trophies and certificates. Further sponsors of the winning candidates may nominate a charity or an approved community service to receive a donation to assist its development.
The program recognises and encourages all nominated candidates to continue their efforts of providing leadership within their own communities.
Judging is by personal interview conducted on a weekend and is based on the information contained in the entry form. A formal presentation night is held for participants and their families.
