Rotary International’s (RI) motto is “Service Above Self”. The Club instills this philosophy of unselfish volunteer service in both its members and the community at large through the implementation and promotion of various projects.
Through their student awards program, the Club continues to promote the values inherent in the RI motto to local youth to ensure they are aware of the benefits of volunteerism.
Students who best exemplify “Service Above Self”, are selected based on the warmth and caring exhibited towards their peers or other members of our society, such as seniors, disabled or disadvantaged.  Selected students are not necessarily highly academic, active in sports or popular with their peer group.
Each recipient received a certificate, name plaque for their school’s Rotary Plaque and a cheque for $100.
