That's very nice, but we have our own local competition, Touchstone, which is jointly sponsored by the 6 northern California chapters, including San Francisco. Why don't you encourage local technical communicators to enter Touchstone? The www.stc-touchstone.org website has not yet been updated for this year, but our deadline for entries is Saturday, Oct 5th. I hope local tech communicators will send us their entries. If you want to be a judge in this year's competition, please send email to xrmxrm@gmail.com, and I'll explain the process. Touchstone accepts entries from anywhere, but we encourage potential entrants to enter their own local competition instead if they have one. We would not publicize Touchstone in the Chicago group, and I for one don't appreciate their publicizing their competition here.
