Mark your calendars! Touchstone, the Northern California technical communication competition is ramping up for 2013–14 and you will want to be involved.
Held each year in the fall, Touchstone attracts excellent work from Northern California and around the country. The competition culminates with an honors banquet in January.
The deadline for entries is Saturday October 5, 2013, so start thinking about what you want to enter.
In addition to selecting winners, Touchstone's experienced judges provide feedback to help entrants improve their work. Many entrants prize this feedback as a valuable benefit of having entered. In addition, winners may request that awards be made at their workplace. Workplace presentations are often attended by entrants' peers, managers, and company executives. Top award winners in the Touchstone competition are sent to compete in the STC International Summit Awards competition.
Our website, www.stc-touchstone.org does not yet display information about the 2013-14 competition, but that will change soon. Meanwhile, the information about last year's competition is there, and this year's won't differ much.
