Extension awards are presented to the two Lions, who, in the opinion of the serving district governor, provided the greatest assistance in the organization of a new Lions club. Lions nominated for an Extension Award receive a medallion for each of the first five clubs chartered, and greater awards for chartering 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 40 clubs.
Any Lion may receive the award, including transfer charter members, but with the exception of the district governor, new charter members and international representatives.
Extension Awards will be presented after the club has been chartered for a year and a day and is in good standing. The Extension Award will be sent to the district governor for presentation to the club organizer(s).
