2008-2009 Pacific Northwest District Kiwanis
Club Website Judging Criteria and Guidelines
The purpose of the district website contest is to stimulate and encourage the production of
club websites and use of the Internet as a powerful communication tool. Any costs
associated with hosting of club websites is the responsibility of the club, as the district or
Kiwanis International does not provide hosting services. Relatively inexpensive (or free)
hosting services are available to service organizations. You may contact PNW Kiwanis
web judging chair firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance obtaining web hosting
The criteria for judging club or division websites are based on The Kiwanis International
Website Guidelines which were instituted by the Kiwanis International Board. They may
be downloaded at www.pnwkiwanis.org/PNWKIResources/clubwebsitetools.html.
To enter the 2008-2009 PNW Website Contest, your club must notify the website judge
by email (email@example.com) between October 1

Your website will then be judged monthly using the following criteria;
1. Linkage (12 points)

have a link to the Kiwanis International website? Do you include a link to your division
website (if available) and each club in your division?
2. Does your website contain the following disclaimer as suggested
by the KI Website Guidelines? (8 points)
“The (name of your club) assumes no responsibility for any sites linked to/from its

rewrite, and delete content that it deems inappropriate for any reason.”
3. Currency (15 points)
