Awards Program

While the primary function of all Exchange Clubs is to serve in their communities through engaging in projects in the Programs of Service (Americanism, Community Service, support of our Youth plus our National Project, the Prevention of Child Abuse) local clubs also compete against each other for both District and National awards to highlight their year’s work.
