Student Leadership Award Program for Students High on Learning: SLAPSHOT


SLAPSHOT offers the perfect opportunity for 100 high school students, selected by Rotary Clubs throughout District 7090, to come together for a wonderful experience in fun, fellowship and learning. The program, founded on Rotary ideals, is a strong link on Rotary’s youth leadership development continuum – Youth Exchange, EarlyAct, Interact and Rotaract. 

SLAPSHOT is a fully-funded weekend in Canterbury Hills, a retreat and learning centre in Dundas Valley Conservation Area, with workshops that build teamwork skills, assertiveness, problem-solving ability and presentation skills.

The program is designed and run by Rotarians in District 7090 (Hamilton/ Niagara/ Brantford/Buffalo) and is intended to leave students feeling more confident in themselves and prepared to strengthen their involvement with initiatives that they believe will make a difference in their local community. 

Ideal candidates are 15-18 years old who demonstrate maturity, enthusiasm, and interest in making a positive difference in their school community.

The program is scheduled for late April or early May. 

Registration by mid-March annually.
