2012 STC International Summit Award Winners from Our Chapter

We previously posted the winners of our chapter’s 2011-2012 Summit Competition.

Some of those winners went on to earn recognition from the 2012 STC International Summit Awards!

The following entries won Awards of Excellence in last year’s International Summit Awards.

  • Pictures of the Future
  • Remote Tank Level Monitoring System Executive Summary
  • Returning Your HughesNet HN9000 or HN9200 Leased Equipment
  • Securing Tomorrow’s Grid
  • Teknos: The Journal of Science, Mathematics, and Technology

An entry that wins an award of Excellence consistently meets high standards in all areas. The entry might contain a single major flaw or a few minor flaws. The entry demonstrates an exceptional understanding of technical communication
principles.

The following entries won Awards of Merit in this year’s International Summit Awards.

  • COSIG Lessons Learned Series
  • Grand Challenges for Biological and Environmental Research

An entry that wins a Merit award consistently meets high standards in most areas. The entry might contain a small number of major or minor flaws, but it still applies technical communication principles in a highly proficient manner.

See the STC site for the historical list of STC International Summit Award winners.
