Take Student Recognition Farther

Kiwanis Kids programs are making a lasting impact in elementary schools around the world. In addition to a K-Kids club, consider engaging a Kiwanis club or sponsor to support a Bring Up Grades or Terrific Kids program as well. 

Bring Up Grades, or BUG, is a program designed to provide recognition to students who raise their grades into an acceptable range, and maintain or continue to raise them from one grading period to the next. Recognition includes being placed on the school’s BUG Honor Roll; a pizza, ice cream, or other food-themed party; a presentation of certificates, pins, and other giveaways. BUG is sponsored by community organizations or Kiwanis clubs but Key Clubs (high school students) can also sponsor a program or serve as a co-sponsor along with a Kiwanis club.

Terrific Kids is a student recognition program that promotes character development, positive self-esteem, and perseverance. Students work with their classroom teacher and establish goals to improve behavior, peer relationships, attendance, or schoolwork. The teachers and principal determine the best schedule for recognition. Some schools recognize Terrific Kids during each grading period, while others recognize students more often. Recognition includes receiving a pin as a Terrific Kid; a pizza, ice cream or other food-themed party; and presentation of certificates and other giveaways. Terrific Kids is sponsored by community organizations or Kiwanis clubs but Key Clubs and Circle K clubs (university students) can also sponsor a program or serve as a co-sponsor along with a Kiwanis club.

If you have already incorporated BUG or Terrific Kids in your club and want to share the outcome for a chance to be featured internationally, please contact Kelly Wallace.
