What is the Fun and Fellowship Competition?

The Fun and Fellowship Competition is designed to help bring fun and fellowship back to our fraternity, and to recognize those who have come up with solutions to having fun during the pandemic.

How do I enter the competition?

The entry window has closed. Voting on finalist will be announced soon.

Who can enter?

Current members of Shriners International can enter the competition.

What are the competition categories?

  • Adapted an existing temple, club or unit event to have fun during the pandemic
  • Created a new temple, club or unit event, or formed a new unit to have fun during the pandemic
  • Propose an entirely new idea on how to have fun, which has not yet occurred

How will the finalists by selected?

After the submission deadline has passed, the Fun and Fellowship Council will evaluate each entry according to a judging rubric and will narrow the entries to the top five finalists within each of the three categories.

What happens after the finalists are chosen?

Each of the 15 finalists will be asked to record a short video (no more than 30 seconds) explaining their unit/club/event/idea. The videos will be uploaded to a platform and posted online and on social media. Viewers will then have the chance to watch the videos and vote for their favorite activity/idea in each of the three categories.

Who can vote?

We encourage all members of our extended Shriners family to vote, including nobles, ladies, family members, friends and members of affiliated Masonic organizations and ladies’ organizations. Please note: you can only vote one time in each category. The voting will take place from Feb. 11 – March 25, 2021.

How will the winners be announced and acknowledged?

Shriners International will announce the first, second and third place winners in each category via email and social media. Winners will also be acknowledged at Imperial Session during the Public Opening in Houston, Texas, on July 4, 2021. All winners will receive a one-of-a-kind Fun and Fellowship award and a plaque.
