Bulletin Contest

Pro-rated per issue during the contest period.  Number of points awarded on publication during the contest is divided by the number of bulletins published during the contest period.  (October to February)

Maximum possible score 100

Cover / Format - 5 points

 Only five (5) points are allotted to the format so that clubs which can spend $1000 or $10 will have equal chance to win.  We hope this will encourage more participation.

The main requirement for the format (cover page) is to identify the name of the club, bulletin editors name and address, the district, region and zone number must be shown.

 The format may also contain such other information which the club considers appropriate.  The major emphasis will be placed on content.

 The Contest runs from October to February inclusive and points will be awarded for two (2) categories.
