To judge entries, you should have substantial experience in technical communication. You are committing to a process that entails at least 40 hours of work, including ongoing interaction with other members of your judging team. Your work product will be written critiques of the entries you judge. In addition, your team will submit consensus award recommendations for all of your entries.
Plan to attend the meetings specified in this year's calendar.
Judging benefits you professionally in many ways, but there is an added benefit. We will have a drawing for $250.00 toward next year's STC membership. We will enter judges who successfully complete their assigned tasks in the drawing.
To volunteer to judge, download the judging application form (a Microsoft Word file), fill it out, and email the completed form to with the subject STC Competition Judge.
