During the Kiwanis year there will be  awards available to Kiwanians and Kiwanis clubs.  These include the Distinguished Member Award, the Distinguished Club Award, the Five Star Award, and the Interclub Award.  Clubs earn banner patches from Kiwanis International for participation in the Kiwanis International Foundation Annual Club Gift Campaign, the Read Around the World program, the Young Children Priority One program, and the Kiwanis One Day project. These KI banner patches require completing forms online using the Kiwanis website,
