Hugh Archer died on July 15, 2005 in Dearborn Michigan, and his legacy to Rotary lives on in the hearts and minds of Rotarians worldwide. Hugh’s great belief was that Rotarians enjoyed their meetings, enjoyed service, enjoyed informality and enjoyed getting to know one another. The Rl theme for his year was pure Hugh Archer: Enjoy Rotary”.  District 6400 and his home club established these awards to honor Hugh during his year as Rotary International President. The Archer award is for a New Project either for an individual club or collaborative with 2 or more clubs

Hedke Awards      2020-21 Rotary Year

There is a survey monkey where you will complete all questions and some free form areas for response.  We recommend that you do the questions on the worksheet and then submit all items thru Survey Monkey.  All applications must be done through Survey Monkey Link.

Please note that this year’s Hedke is different from past years. Questions that required a subjective response have been eliminated. In their place are several questions at the end of the survey to which your club can submit a “free form” response. Please make sure you read those questions carefully and prepare your answers as directed. Failure to upload that document could result in a significant loss of points and penalize your club’s score. 

PDF Worksheet for Hedke_2020-21

Remember once you start the Hedke in Survey Monkey,  Please exit and go back into it via the same computer, to avoid having to redo the entire application.                       https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Hedke2020-21
