Scrapbook

SCRAPBOOK

Scrapbook awards are available to clubs in two formats:  PRINTED and DIGITAL.  Additional information may be obtained from the State Program and Speakers Chairman.  One full year’s work is to be judged, based on the individual club’s calendar year.  Entries, which are judged by a committee, are divided into classes according to the size of membership.  Above all, keep in mind that this is the history of your club and must be in good taste at all times.
