Delray Sylvester Hartsfield
Class Service Award – RULES and GUIDELINES
- The Hartsfield Class Service Award, embodied in the form of the Hartsfield Cup, is to be given to the class atAtkinsHigh Schoolwhich accumulates the most points in class-sponsored service projects during the course of the year.
- The competition shall, in normal years, commence in September and end in May.
- Point totals for the four classes will be announced once a month.
- In the 2011-2012 school year the competition for the Hartsfield Cup will begin in February of 2012 and run through May of the same year.
- The Hartsfield Cup will be awarded at the Atkins High School Awards Assembly in June.
- Classes will be permitted to complete two service hours per month. In a normal school year, when the competition runs from September through May, a total of eighteen service projects will be possible for each class.
- Service projects will need to be approved by a committee of teachers before they are conducted. Proposals for these projects must be completed on the attached form [insert link to Word Document here] and submitted to the committee at least a week before the project is scheduled to take place. These proposals will need to be signed by the appropriate class officers and the class sponsor.
- Each project must be supervised by at least one adult. That adult doesnothave to be the class sponsor; however, the class sponsor must approve of the supervising adult.
- Projects must take place during the course of a single day and be directed toward a single purpose. A two-day project must be counted as both of a class’s allowed projects for a given month.
- In-school projects are permitted. However, classes are encouraged to seek out-of-school service opportunities.
- Points will be awarded based on the number of service hours compiled by a class adjusted to reflect that class’s size. The formula for determining points will be the number of hours accumulated by the class divided by the number of students in that class, multiplied by one hundred. A class of 150 students which completes a service project logging 75 hours, then, will be awarded 50 points, while a class of 60 students which completes a service project logging 45 hours will be awarded 75 points.
- When a service project is approved the class conducting the project will be given an hours log by the approval committee. The class will document the hours worked by each attending member of the class on the log. The adult supervising the project will verify its veracity and then sign the form. The class officers will then submit the hours log to Mr. Phillis.
- It shall be Mr. Phillis’s responsibility to calculate the hours accumulated during the run of the service project and to keep track of each class’s points.
