The Rotary Foundation's Distinguished Service Award

 

The Distinguished Service Award is the Rotary Foundation’s highest service recognition and is given to Rotarians who have demonstrated exemplary service to the Foundation.

What is unique about the award is what it represents. Trustees of The Rotary Foundation give this award to those Rotarians who have rendered exceptional service to the Foundation beyond the district level or for an extended period of time. No more than fifty (50) Distinguished Service Awards are presented every year.

Recipients must have received the Citation for Meritorious Service at least four years prior to be eligible for this award, which is given only to those who have demonstrated active service; one who has contributed only financially is not considered for this award.

Rotary District 5340 is proud of its Distinguished Service Award recipients. Since 1974, eleven Rotary members from Rotary District 5340 have been recognized as recipients of the Distinguished Service Award.
