MSPRA Gold Medallion Awards will be given to winning entries selected annually by the competition judges. Winners will be recognized and presented with their MSPRA Gold Medallion Award at the MSPRA State Conference later this year.
A planned presentation is necessary, submitted in a notebook (see details under "Rules") organized in the logical order of Assessment, Planning, Communication and Evaluation. Your entry will be judged on clarity of concept, good writing and evidence of objective evaluation of your project/program. Judges are experienced school public relations professionals.
The 2011 competition is open to any project or program completed between July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011. Your project must be submitted in a three-ring hard-cover, stiff spine binder to accommodate 8.5" x 11" material no more than 3" thick. Put nothing on the cover. Place the entry form inside the binder.
The first two pages of the project should be entitled "Project Summary" and are the most critical in the entry. Organize your summary carefully around the areas that the judges will evaluate on a point scale. These include:
One-of-a-kind material should be duplicated for inclusion in the notebook.
Fee is $25 per entry for MSPRA members; $100 for nonmembers.
Entry Deadline: Entries must be postmarked by July 10, 2011.
