2020-21 Awards and Recognition

Heighten members’ leadership experience – while adding more fun to the year. Participate in one or all of the following club and member recognition opportunities.

Congratulations to this year’s award winners.

Distinguished/Honor Club 

(Annual Achievement Report)

  • Builders Club members can complete this online form with the help of their faculty advisor. This self-scoring report shares activities the club needs to conduct to receive recognition. In fact, think of this report as a guide to what your Builders Club should achieve every year.
  • Reviewing the Annual Achievement Report at the beginning of the year ensures that the club accomplishes all the requirements to achieve recognition.
  • Reports are due June 10 and depending on the number of points earned, the club will be honored as a Distinguished Club or an Honor Club.
  • Faculty advisors of qualifying clubs will receive an email with confirmation of recognition and a link to download a digital badge to display on the school/club website, as well as social media graphics to promote the club’s achievement online.
  • Point totals: 15 points or more = Distinguished Club, 10 – 14 points = Honor Club

The benefits of being a distinguished club are:

  • Recognition makes members proud and shows others how successful the club has been throughout the year.
  • It’s an opportunity to share great news about club accomplishments—particularly with the school, the district and sponsoring clubs. Others will want to celebrate with you, and they might even bestow recognition of their own!
  • It might inspire others to start new Builders Clubs. By sharing the good work of your club members, your club can help grow the Builders Club program all over the world.

Submit:  Annual Achievement Report (Due June 10)
