Technical Communication Competitions

Competitions provide an opportunity for technical communicators to receive recognition for their work. Volunteer judges with professional expertise in technical communication judge each entry against criteria that measure the degree of technical content, achievement of purpose, and technical execution whether online or in printed deliverable. Both members and nonmembers may enter their work in an STC technical communication competition. While STC suspended its international competition in 2017, several chapters continue managing competitions locally.
