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.

Lions Quest Champion Award

The Lions Quest Champion Award recognizes Lions that demonstrate an active commitment to introducing and sustaining Lions Quest activity at the club, region, district, or multiple district level. There is no limit on the number of awards to be issued annually. Individuals receiving the award are eligible for consideration annually. Recipients will receive a certificate from LCIF. District Governors or Council Chairpersons may nominate Lions by completing the nomination form. Lions may also nominate themselves or others by completing the nomination form and submitting it to their District Governor. Nominations are accepted on a rolling basis.

Lions Quest Spotlight!
Lions Quest (LQ) continues to grow in Baltimore City Public Schools (BCPS). Multiple schools, including Eager Street Academy, a school for teens located within the Baltimore City Detention Center, are implementing the program during and after school. Interviews with BCPS teachers in January 2011 highlighted the overwhelmingly positive benefits, including creating safe and inviting school climates and increases in positive behavior. Eager Street Princpal Dr. James Scofield described the reductions in violence, teamwork and conflict resolution he's witnessed. "I think that Lions Quest has been a saving grace for many, many, many Baltimore City Public School children," he explained.
