WHAT’S NEW:

  • New Judging Policy – By entering, you agree to serve as a judge. Enter once = judge once; enter twice = judge twice; enter three times or more = judge three times (at minimum). Those who did not complete their judging during the 2016-2017 calendar year will pay higher entry fees during the November 2017 Call for Entries.

Entry fees will be $25 more per name, per entry.

There are typically 3-4 opportunities to judge other chapters’ entries during the year (we call them Rounds) and all entrants are notified via email. You can expect to see these judging notices regularly through July/August, after which the judging is on an unscheduled basis – if at all.

What’s the time commitment for judging? 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the category; judging can be done anywhere you have a computer; it’s all online.

  • New Categories:

News Excellence
Technical Achievement
