Contest Guidelines

  2. The first place Non-Digital Member Recruitment Poster Contest winner from each of the organized Key Club Districts will be eligible to compete in the contest. In the case a District does not hold a district contest using the prescribed rules of this contest, the district may select an entry by other means and so certify by signature of the District Administrator. Clubs existing within a non-districted area shall submit their entries to Key Club International.

  3. The poster should be designed to recruit new members for Key Club, and should not bear the name of any school, community, or district.

  4. Entries in this category may not include material produced through electronic means, such as cameras and computer software. The poster dimensions should be 18 inches by 24 inches, with the actual height and width not varying more than one-half inch from the prescribed contest dimensions. The poster should not measure more than one-eighth inch in thickness.

Key Club International reserves the right to reproduce any contest winners, providing appropriate credit to the Key Club and artist. Although a poster will not be selected based on its ability to be reproduced, keep in mind that a printer-friendly poster is more likely to be circulated following International convention than one that is difficult to produce.
