  • Watch videos spread the Kiwanis message

    Including video clips on your club website or in electronic newsletters is a powerful way to make Kiwanis activities come alive for your members. But don’t let unfamiliar technology scare you off: Downloading, viewing and even embedding video into your own website is not as hard as you think. You can easily learn how at www.KiwanisOne.org/videos.

    And don’t forget to subscribe to the Kiwanis International official YouTube video channel at www.youtube.com/kiwanisinternational. You can be notified when new videos are posted.

    Some older Kiwanis videos are available as a CD data file or as a DVD, which may include a cost for production, materials and shipping. Please send all requests to videos@kiwanis.org.

  • Trick or Treat for UNICEF: 60 years strong

    For 60 years now, children in the United States have dressed in costume on Halloween night and gone door to door collecting coin donations for UNICEF. Since 1994, Key Club has joined in the fun Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF, a worldwide organization that, like Kiwanis, is dedicated to serving children’s needs. Over the years, Key Clubbers—with help from Builders Clubs— have raised nearly $5 million for iodine deficiency programs worldwide, HIV and AIDS programs in Kenya and Swaziland and, most recently, Operation Uruguay: Protecting the rights of children.

    Join Key Club in their effort to raise $1.5 million for Operation Uruguay by Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF.  Builders Clubs and Key Clubs will receive their collection boxes in early fall. Order any extra collection boxes—and encourage members of your Service Leadership Program clubs to do the same—from UNICEF.

  • Truly Moving Pictures

    Have you ever been moved by a film? Have you ever discussed a movie’s artistic or moral value? If so, you have experienced a truly moving picture.

    The Truly Moving Picture Award (TMPA) is a way to honor theatrically released films that offer more than mere entertainment. We bestow this award on approximately 15-20 films a year that impact audiences in a meaningful way. Submissions are received directly from studios and producers for consideration.

    By Katie Tammen, Northwest Florida Daily News, Florida (MCT)

    Fort Walton Beach, Fla.

    Okaloosa County students soon will have another tool to help them learn. For the last month or so, students at four schools have been testing a new program similar to YouTube that lets them share video and audio projects with other students at their school or elsewhere in the county.

    "We want that alternate assessment, that alternate opportunity for students to present their knowledge," said Dolores Noechel, the instructional technology specialist for the school district.
