The Cog Award
This is the premier award of District 6400 and is designed to recognize individuals for their exemplary past and continuing service to the District. Just as the cog represents an integral working part of the Rotary logo wheel, the individual represents a vital moving part of the Rotary Wheel of Service.  The COG Award is designed to recognize an individual, currently active, for outstanding service in one or more of the five avenues of service including continued service to the individual's club.
