Rotary International President Citation for Rotaract Club

The criteria for this prestigious award are determined by each year's incoming RI President. Even if your club is not interested in being one of the best Interact clubs, the requirements might give your club some ideas to pursue.

World Rotaract Week

World Rotaract Week is celebrated every year during the week of 13 March to commemorate the founding of the first Rotaract club in 1968.

To mark this occasion with Rotaractors and Rotarians around the world, Rotaract clubs, in partnership with their sponsor Rotary clubs, are encouraged to participate in joint projects during World Interact Week.

World Interact Week is an excellent opportunity for clubs to publicize, promote, and inform the community about the great work accomplished by its members. Clubs should encourage community members to get involved with Rotaract projects.

Other Awards and Contests

From year to year, awards and/or contests are created by the Rotary International President and/or our District Governor for the current year. Sometimes they become annual awards and/or contests. For 2012, our District Governor has created a Photo Contest which is open to all members of District 6630 including Rotaractors.
