Project HappinessInteractive Advisor Education

This year, Kiwanis International introduced the IDEA Toolkit to Builders Clubs. Written specifically for club officers, the toolkit guides members through planning and executing a service project of their choosing – from beginning to end. The second step of IDEA is Develop the Passion.

During this step, members learn more about a service need chosen by their whole club. Encourage club members to create and deliver a speech on why they each feel passionate about helping the service need that their club has chosen for their high-impact service project. Speeches should include a summary of why the member feels passionate about helping the service need in the community and how the club hopes to help impact this service need with a service project.

Best speech rules:
  • One person from the club can craft a speech, or it can be a group effort.
  • Speeches must be submitted as videos no longer than 2 minutes. Anything longer will not be accepted. 

  • Video formats accepted include: asf, asx, avi, divx, dv, dvx, m4v, mov, mp4, mpeg, mpg, qt, wmv, 3g2, 3gp, 3ivx, 3vx 

  • The maximum file size limit for a video is 5GB. Anything larger will not be accepted. 

  • Upon submitting, club members will be asked to include the first names and grades of members who wrote the essay.

More information on how to submit entries is coming soon! Stay tuned!
