  • Promoting a visually appealing image of an organisation active in its local community
  • Posts relating to Rotary in the national / international community
  • Use of questions to spark conversations and activity on the page

All are eligible to enter, and have an equal chance of winning the District 1190 Club Facebook/social media Competition, with the trophy being presented at the District Conference in Grange over Sands.
