Documentation content must include the following:
- A description of the project including beginning date and ending date or anticipated ending date and chronology of activities (project must be expected to be completed during the current Rotary year);

- The number of club members participating and how they participated (i.e., assisted in planning, gave money, did physical work, etc.);
- Amount and sources of funds and other contributions obtained;

- Each entry should contain documentation of only one project. Clubs are welcome to submit as many projects as they wish, so long as each project is done as a separate entity. The same project may not be submitted for more than one category.
The District Awards Committee will be looking for the quality of the project and complete, clear, and concise documentation, including grammar/spelling.

- 60%: Impact of the project on the individuals served (What needs were met?)
- 20%: Extent that all club members and others who collaborated were involved
- 10%: Originality of project (Is this a continuing project or a new one that meets needs that haven’t been met before?)
- 10%: Presentation and appearance of documentation
