Notice: The STC Board of Directors voted in May 2017 to suspend the International Summit Awards (ISAs) competition indefinitely. The ISA competition has not generated the necessary interest to warrant continuing the program in its current format. STC will evaluate whether there is enough interest to merit re-opening the society-level competition.The regional competitions will continue as they are currently being managed locally.

Through 2017, the Society for Technical Communication sponsored international competitions through which technical communicators had the opportunity to receive recognition for their work. STC chapters held preliminary competitions from which Excellence and Distinguished Award winners advanced to the international level. Each entry was judged against criteria that measure the degree of technical content, achievement of purpose, and technical execution whether online or in printed deliverable.
