(Hudson, Ohio, USA / September 15, 2011) – The Northeast Ohio chapter of the Society for Technical Communication (NEO STC) will host a competition for those in the technical communication field. Due to budget restrictions in 2010 the competition was not held, so NEO STC is anticipating a high number of entries for 2011.
This year, the competition is divided into four distinct categories: Informational Materials, Instructional Materials, Promotional Materials, and User Support Materials. Winners will earn one of three award levels: Distinguished Technical Communication, Excellence, and Merit.
Entrants receive detailed evaluation and feedback from peers and recognition for their work. In addition, submissions that receive Distinguished Technical Communication or Excellence awards are automatically entered in the international competition, where the submissions will receive additional evaluation.
Applications to judge the event must be received by October 7, 2011. Entries for the competition must be received by October 14, 2011. For more information and applications for entrants and potential judges, please visit www.neostc.org.
