Grand Lodge Website Contest!
Local Lodge Website Contest
The Fraternal Committee of the Grand Lodge will award Local Lodges who keep their Members informed and active in Grand Lodge Programs and local communities’ projects through a Local Lodge website or Facebook page.
Local Lodges wishing to participate must have competed in their respective State and having won, been submitted by their State Associations before October 1, 2018.
Lodges in States not holding a State Website Contest, (NOTE: Washington State does not have a Website Contest!) must submit an application to their Area Representative on the Grand Lodge Fraternal Committee. The Area Rep will then select a website winner from that State and submit to the Website Contest Administrator for judging. For Washington State that area representative is Dennis Ramsey, so sent this application directly to him!
Websites or Facebook page judging will be very similar to the State Website Contest based on Content (news of Grand Lodge Programs, news of State and Local programs); Layout (menu or table of contents, accessibility of committees and readability); Design (special presentation methods); Graphics (pop up or scrolling messages, etc., overall continuity of site, use of photographs or graphics); and telling the Elks story. These five points will receive 1-20 points each.
Local Lodges will have their Website or Facebook page accessed three times during the year by the Website Contest Administrator. Website or Facebook page can earn from Three-Star to Five-Star Awards.
