DIVISION PROJECT AWARD 

The District designed this award to promote cooperation on service within a division with hopes that these projects will spark a club's interest to have close communications with the entire division throughout the year. 

One division will be chosen as the winner. A plaque will be presented to the Lt. Governor with certificates given to each club that participated. The division will have the option to provide a feature article for the Carolina Kiwanian. Second and Third place winners will also be chosen and awarded certificates (to both the Lt. Governor and each participating club with the option of an article in a future issue of the Carolina Kiwanian.

HERB HENNIG AWARD 

The Herb Hennig Award is given to an outstanding club secretary. Clubs can nominate an outstanding secretary by sending a written explanation why they feel the secretary is deserving of the award. 

Clubs should send to their Lt. Governor substantiating letters from Kiwanis leaders, such as past club presidents, and should also have letters from others in the community who could substantiate the secretary's service to the community and to Kiwanis. Lt. Governors are responsible to acquire nominations from the clubs in their division. The Lt. Governor then selects one out of all the nominations received and sends it to the District Office by October 31 of the next administrative year. 

The District Achievement Committee then considers all nominees for the award and selects one. The chosen secretary is usually presented the Herb Hennig Trophy at the Mid-Winter Conference. 

INTERCLUB AWARD 

The Kiwanis Club in the Carolinas District having the best interclub visitation record during each administrative year will be recognized and will receive an award at the District Convention held during the next administrative year. The Achievement Committee will choose the winning club at the end of the Kiwanis year by evaluation of the Interclub Report submitted by clubs. Note: An official interclub visit is a planned visit in which 4 members of a club participate; two members must be from a Kiwanis club and the other two may be from a Circle K or Key Club sponsored by the visiting Kiwanis club. If the evaluation of the reports using a set grading system results in a tie between two or more clubs, the largest number of member's participation in the visits to other clubs in the division will be the winner. 

Information will be taken from the monthly reports.

INTERCLUB PATCH 

If a club completed an interclub with every club in its division, and completes the information on their monthly report forms, then the club will receive an Interclub Patch.
