The Competitions: Publications, Art, & Online

This year's competition theme echos our Region 7 Conference theme:
"Expanding Horizons: Pioneering Technical Communication in the 21st
Century." As technical communicators in the '90s, we are the pioneers
who will blaze the trail through the rapidly advancing technologies of
print, visual, and online communications.

By submitting your work, you can:

o Receive local and national recognition
o Show off your ability to produce high-quality technical materials
o Receive written evaluations of your work
o Qualify your entries for STC's International Competitions

Those who participate in the competitions demonstrate their commitment
to superior communication.

Awards and Recognition

Four levels of recognition may be awarded in each category:

o Distinguished Technical Communication
o Award of Excellence
o Award of Merit
o Award of Achievement

Whether you win an award or not, you will receive an acknowledgement
from the chapter and the judges' evaluations of your entries.

All entries will be placed on display at our Annual Awards Banquet in
April, 1997. This is your chance to mingle with other pioneers and view
the winners. The 2nd Annual "High Society Awards" Ceremony will be
held in April--watch for full details in January!

Eligibility and Fees

Works about technical subjects produced after September 1, 1995 are
eligible for entry in any of the competitions. The rules specify several
other requirements for entries.

Entry fees vary, depending on the number of contributors; entry fees
range from $25 to $50. A special rate is available for student projects.
