Eyeglass collection is a project that provides eyeglasses to needy recipients throughout the world through our recycling centers. The used eyeglass collection contest is open to every club in our district and will be scored on the average pair per member collected, based on the club's July 1 membership total. Regardless of club size, each club has an equal chance of winning based on SDRs. Scoring records for each club will be maintained by the Special Awards Committee which will determine the district winners. Awards will be presented for top and honorable mention clubs at our District Convention. Clubs are on their honor to report only recyclable eyeglasses. Loose lenses, broken or incomplete eyeglasses and cases should not to be included on your report. Hour worked by clubs at eyeglass centers will reflect on contest and should be reported on SDR.
The contest will run from April 1 through March 31.
