The Rotaract Outstanding Project Awards recognise exceptional community or international service projects that focus and increase the humanitarian service goals of Rotary International.
Each online nomination form must be submitted by February 1, 2022. Awards will be granted to one winner in each of the designated regions. Awards will also be granted to international winners for projects submitted by a single club, projects submitted by more than one club or an entire Rotary district, and multi-district projects. Awardees will receive $1,000 toward future project activities. Winners will be announced at the Rotaract Preconvention. Projects that took place from February 1, 2021 through January 31, 2022 are eligible for consideration. Rotaract clubs that have received an award in previous years are still eligible to receive an award again.
Project submissions will be evaluated in the following criteria:
- Sustainability (25%)
- Community assessment and impact in Rotary’s areas of focus (25%)
- Collaboration with Rotarians and local experts to enhance effectiveness (20%)
- Support of Rotary’s commitment to change lives locally and globally (15%)
- Percentage of Rotaract club members involved in development and implementation of project (15%)
Optional supporting materials
Project submissions may include links to online photographs, videos, blogs, social media sites, local media coverage, and other information that demonstrate the reach and impact of the project submission. Members of the award panel will consider this information as they review your nomination. Only information submitted on the nomination form will be considered; information submitted directly to RI by email or post will not be reviewed by the award panel.
Nominations for the 2021–22 Rotaract Outstanding Projects are open since August 1, 2021. Follow the Rotaract Facebook page to stay updated on the Awards. Visit https://on.rotary.org/ROPA2021 for more details.
