The Objects of Rotary do not include winning or awarding prizes or awards. But service should be recognised. It is not about reward. It is about recognition for dedication, effort and making a difference: dedication to the ideal of Service Above Self; effort that members of Rotary Clubs expend to make a difference in their local or international communities; and making a difference by producing an investment in the future.
