Do you have a number of years of experience in your line of work? Do you consider yourself pretty darn competent at what you do? If so, please consider sharing your expertise with others by signing up to be a judge for the 2009-2010 STC (Society for Technical Communication) D.C. area competition!
There are actually two separate competitions: Online Communication and Technical Publications. Each competition is split into categories for which entrants submit their work. When you apply to be a judge, you can specify your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choices for the categories you’d like to judge.
If you would like to be a judge, there are two major meetings that you need to put on your calendar:
- Entries Pick-Up and Judges’ Training meeting
Saturday, Dec. 5, 10:30 am – 12 noon, at Patrick Henry Library in Vienna. Snacks are provided.
- Consensus Meeting
Saturday, Jan. 9, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm, at 1st Presbyterian Church in Arlington. Lunch is provided.
In the five weeks between these two required meetings, you can expect to spend approximately 10 -15 hours total going over the four to six entries you are judging.
