Key Club International is excited to announce the creation of the Signature Project Contest. Each year, Key Club will recognize clubs for recurring service projects that make a positive impact on communities. The top project in each club size category will be recognized at the annual Key Club International convention.
Signature projects are service projects that a club conducts at least annually — and for which it has become known in its community and on campus. A project must occur annually for the past three to five years.*
Clubs that have recently started a new project that will recur or conducted a one-time project should consider entering our “Single Service” contest.
Some important information to keep in mind:
Key Clubs interested in submitting their projects into the contest must use the online form linked below
The entry form must be submitted electronically by March 15, 2023.
The top place entries from the New England and Bermuda District Signature Project Contest will be sent up to compete in the Key Club International contest.
Key Club International Signature Project Contest rules, instructions and criteria:
Any Key Club in “good standing” may enter. “Good standing” is a club with 11+ dues-paid members and an updated roster.
The submitted project must occur at least annually.
Clubs must submit the entry form by the district’s due date of March 17, 2023. Late entries will not be accepted. All contest entries must be submitted through the online submission form.
Only club projects may be submitted for consideration. District projects are not eligible.

The District will submit its winning entries to compete in the international contest. The international contest closes May 5, 2023.Submissions after that will not be accepted.
A panel consisting of members of the Kiwanis International Board of Trustees and the Key Club International Board of Trustees will review all submissions that meet contest criteria and will select the gold, silver and bronze winners.
The decision of the panel is final.
The platinum, gold, silver and bronze winners will be awarded at the Key Club International convention.
Important Note: If you were unable to do your project in 2020 or 2021 due to COVID-19, you are still eligible. This must still be a yearly project and would have had to been done in 2019 and years prior to the pandemic.
