Local Lodge

Website Contest

The Fraternal Committee of the Grand Lodge will award Local Lodges that 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, 2023.

Lodges in States not holding a State 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 it to the Website Contest Administrator for judging.

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.
