Documentation of projects submitted for the Lacy-Bomar Awards must be submitted by March 2, 2018.

This year ALL Lacy Bomar Award submissions will be done online!

 Submissions are to have a COVER SHEET with the following information:

  1. Name of the Rotary club and the president;
  2. The maximum number of members in the club during the project;
  3. The name, mailing address, telephone numbers, and electronic mail address of the project contact person;
  4. The Award category entered (Community, Vocational, International, New Generations, and Fundraising)

Submissions must now be sent in electronically.  Please follow these guidelines for each submission:

     1.  Submissions must be turned in in either a Microsoft Word document format (.doc or              .docx) or Adobe PDF (.pdf) format.

     2.  Each submission should be wholly included in the document.  In other words, the                  cover page, documents, graphics, images, pictures, scans, etc., should all be included            in the single file uploaded.

     3.  The file name for each award submission should follow the format:
          Club_Name-Award_Name-Submission_Number

          As an example, if Cookeville Sunset is submitting a PDF submission for the                            Community Service  award, the filename would be

           Cookeville_Sunset-Community_Service_1.pdf

         You are allowed to submit more than one submission per category.  If Cookeville                   Sunset was sending in a second submission, it would be

          Cookeville_Sunset-Community_Service_2.pdf

 

Documentation content must include the following:

  1. A description of the project including beginning date and ending date or anticipated ending date and chronology of activities (project must be expected to be completed during the current Rotary year);
  2. The goals and objectives; accomplishments (i.e., project results);
  3. The number of club members participating and how they participated (i.e., assisted in planning, gave money, did physical work, etc.);
  4. Amount and sources of funds and other contributions obtained;
  5. Any other information that illustrates “Service Above Self” of the club members.
  6. Each entry should contain documentation of only one project. Clubs are welcome to submit as many projects as they wish, so long as each project is done as a separate entity. The same project may not be submitted for more than one category.

The District Awards Committee will be looking for the quality of the project and complete, clear, and concise documentation, including grammar/spelling.

 Submissions for the Lacy-Bomar Awards are to be evaluated on the following criteria:

  1. 60%: Impact of the project on the individuals served (What needs were met?)
  2. 20%: Extent that all club members and others who collaborated were involved
  3. 10%: Originality of project (Is this a continuing project or a new one that meets needs that haven’t been met before?)
  4. 10%: Presentation and appearance of documentation
