Sun Prairie Rotary initiated the Sun Prairie's Service Above Self Awards in 2001. Criteria utilizes Rotary’s motto of Service Above Self and the Four Way Test. Rotary’s motto, Service above Self exemplifies the humanitarian spirit of the organization’s members. Strong fellowship among Rotarians and meaningful community and international service projects characterize Rotary worldwide. Rotarian’s nominate individuals in the community who exemplify the principles. The last few years we have nominated one high school student.
Sometimes it can be difficult to recognize bravery and strength within ourselves; trust that you will succeed at what you set your mind to! Having self-doubt can lead us away from trying something new or accepting a challenge. Take pride in your accomplishments and strengths – they are what make you, you!

1. Is it the TRUTH? 2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTERFRIENDSHIPS? 4. Will it be BENEFICAL to all concerned?
