Judge Responsibilities

In addition to submitting entries, the Greater NY, Philadelphia and Houston Regional TechComm Competition provides opportunities for professional development, networking, and sharpening your skills of observation and evaluation.

If you are an industry professional with at least five years of experience working or teaching in communication or a related field, then you are invited to serve as a volunteer judge in our competition. STC membership is not a requirement.

Judging lets you join other technical communication professionals to compare notes on what works and what doesn't work in technical communication. Because we have a wide pool of judges, you can enter and also serve as a judge with no conflict of interest. You will use the STC entry assessment form to evaluate your entries independently. You will work with a team of judges to achieve award-level consensus for each entry.

The highlight of the judging process is the onsite consensus judging event. The judging event is an enjoyable opportunity to mingle, network, and learn from each other. We also offer remote judging opportunities. You do not have to be an STC member to serve as judge.

If you want to judge fill in the electronic Judges Information Form by October 3, 2014. Your completed form will go to our Competition Judging Co-managers, John Shea and Ellen O'Brien.  We estimate that judges will devote a minimum of 15-24 hours.

Training for Judges

Training is offered for all judges and planned for October 1 or 3, 2013.  Training will be conducted virtually by Carolyn Reynolds and a member of the STC International Awards Team. Training is mandatory for new judges.  Do you know someone in our industry who has an interest in finding out more about STC? Please share the information about the competition and about the judging opportunity.
