STC competitions offer an excellent way for you and your team to get recognition for your technical publication, web site, help system, training, and other forms of technical communication. Each year, the STC Carolina Chapter sponsors competitions.

This year, all STC Chapters have a hard deadline of October 28 for receiving entries. Judges evaluate entries against a checklist of criteria and decide whether to nominate each entry for an award. The top award winners in the Carolina Chapter go on to compete for Best of Show.
