The 1975 Kiwanis International Convention held in San Diego had as its theme, Touch A Life. It was reported that “Hundreds of new projects were added to meet an International Major Emphasis challenge ‘to Touch a Life.’”
Different clubs approached this challenge in different ways.

The past three recipients were Irene Whitymyre, Wayne Nelson and Robert Anderson.
