Lions Quest Achievement Awards
Lions Quest has changed the lives of over 13 million
young people and 550,000 teachers in more than 90 countries
thanks to the work of Lions around the world. Lions
Clubs International Foundation understands that without
the dedication of Lions at every level we would not
be able to have the impact we do. To recognize those
members, clubs and districts for their participation
in and commitment to the program LCIF has established
the following awards.
