District 5495 Governor Bret McKeand has unveiled the 2021-22 edition of the District "5 Avenues of Service" Distinction Award.
This year's criteria for the award was shared during the August monthly President's Call on Aug. 26.
Criteria for this year's award reflect Presidential Initiatives promoted by Rotary International President Shekhar Mehta, as well as district initiatives promoted by DG Bret. The district's "5 Avenues of Service" Distinction is separate and different from  the RI Presidential Citation. To qualify for a Presidential Citation, club presidents must achieve goals as listed in My Rotary.
As in the past, there are five avenues of service: Club service, community service, international service, vocational service and youth service.
Each area of service has several achievement opportunities for clubs to pursue. To receive the award, clubs will need to achieve at least one required project in each avenue of service as well as one optional project.
Clubs have until May 6, 2022 to submit their final results. Winners and certificates will be announced and recognized at the 2022 District Conference, May 13-14 in Prescott, Arizona.
