Centennial Eyeglass Challenge
From October 1, 2016 – May 6, 2017, Clubs across Wisconsin will collect used eyeglasses and deliver them for processing at the Eyeglass Recycling Center in Rosholt, Wisconsin. They may be delivered in a number of ways:
- WLF Trailer at Conventions & During The Centennial Bus Tour – The Centennial Committee will use part of the LCI Grant to have the trailer wrapped with eyeglass collection artwork. This artwork will help promote eyeglass collection everywhere the WLF trailer travels throughout the Challenge and beyond.
- By Individual Clubs directly to the Eyeglass Recycling facility.
- Through special District Collection Day(s)/Challenges – Look for information from your District Centennial Coordinator about special Collection Day events or internal Region/Zone/Club Challenges that will encourage more club participation.
- During the Statewide Eyeglass Tour leading up to the 2017 State Convention – Prior to the 2017 State Convention, the WLF trailer will tour the State visiting each District for PR opportunities and to collect eyeglasses from the public and Lions Clubs. More to come on logistics.
The Contest Rules are simple:
- Eyeglasses must be submitted to WLF between October 1, 2016 – May 6, 2017 in boxes with Club/District name clearly marked on the box. Credit for broken eyeglasses with metal in the frames.
- In order to make the Contest fair for Districts of all sizes, the following formula will be used:
- # of Eyeglasses Donated ÷ No. of Members on 5/6/17. Example: District with 2,000 members that donates 10,000 eyeglasses will have 5 eyeglasses/member. The higher the eyeglasses/member, the better!
- The District with the highest number of eyeglasses/member will be named the Centennial Eyeglass Challenge Winner, The winning District will be announced in July and will receive special recognition at their 2017-18 District Convention.
