On January 9, consensus judging for the Technical Publications and Online competitions was held at First Presbyterian Church in Arlington, VA. Twenty-one technical communication professionals evaluated and determined awards for a multitude of entries, some from as far away as the UK and Germany! Thanks to all judges and committee members who participated in judges training and consensus.
