  • Be part of the parade: Enter the shoebox float contest!

    Here’s a fun idea for all your creative and inspired K-Kids: Create a shoebox float.

    Decorated in themes associated with The Eliminate Project, these floats will be presented at the Kiwanis International Convention in New Orleans in June where they’ll compete for recognition as 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. But all entries will be winning efforts because working on these floats will help educate K-Kids and others about maternal and neonatal tetanus and our effort to eliminate it from the face of the Earth.

    With the help of faculty and Kiwanis advisors, K-Kids can follow the contest rules and use theme ideas to design fabulous floats. 

    Encourage your clubs to participate, promoting The Eliminate Project message and maybe even winning a cash prize!

  • Everything’s coming up roses

    If you join the 450 million viewers watching the Tournament of Roses Parade on January 2, keep your eyes open for some familiar faces. Kiwanis International President Alan Penn and his wife, Jeri, will be among the representatives riding the Winter Wonderland Kiwanis International float.

    Not the spectator type? Get more involved: Sponsor the Kiwanis float or join the Rose Float Committee in the actual decorating. Besides working on our own Winter Wonderland-themed float, Kiwanis volunteers spend thousands of hours on other floats as well. Join in the fun and get the inside story on what goes into these gorgeous creations.
