Engaging the next generation of Rotary leaders
Share your service-learning journey in the 2021 Interact Awards!
This year’s Interact Awards invites Interact clubs explore to Rotary’s new service-learning resources. After applying service-learning to your club experience, submit a video, photos, and/or an essay showcasing your club’s service-learning journey to the Interact Awards.

Submit your nominations by 1 December 2021 for a chance to be named “Best Video,” “Best Photo,” or “Best Essay” and receive funds to support your Interact club’s next project. 
Taking Action
Be a part of the 2022 Rotaract Preconvention
After two years of gathering virtually, we’re optimistic the Rotaract Preconvention will be held in person again! Help us create a memorable and engaging event by leading a session on an initiative, project, or topic you want to share with Rotaract Preconvention attendees.

The deadline for proposals is 30 September 2021, submit yours today!
Join us for Reconnect Week 2021
During Reconnect Week on 4-10 October, Rotarians and alumni from around the world will gather online and in person to share their experiences, network with each other, and exchange ideas for staying involved in Rotary. This is the week that we recognize the value our alumni bring to our organization, and when we do what we can to engage alumni with Rotary. Get inspiration for your next event and post your own projects and events to inspire others to take part in Reconnect Week.
Get ready for World Polio Day
For World Polio Day on 24 October, we need everyone’s help to raise awareness about Rotary’s efforts to eradicate polio for good. Download the World Polio Day Toolkit for resources and tips to plan activities and promote a polio-free world.

Share social media posts from the toolkit with #EndPolio and #WorldPolioDay hashtags, create a fundraiser for Rotary’s PolioPlus Fund, or host a virtual or community event. Be sure to register your participation for World Polio Day to show how the Rotary community is taking action to end polio. Follow us @EndPolioNow for World Polio Day updates and to learn more about protecting children across the globe from this paralyzing disease.
