And the Winners Are . . .
STC Competition Awards
by Deborah Crockett, Documentation Project Manager, Hewlett-Packard Company
Hmmm...how many entries would we receive this year? Year before last there were 161, and last year there were 135. With an economy that is still down, how many would there be? Surprisingly, there were 133 entries, only two fewer than last year, for STC Houston to ship to Georgia for judging.
STC Atlanta judged our entries and awarded only 58 awards, as compared to 84 awarded last year by the Southwestern Ohio chapter.
This year's awards included 36 Merit, 19 Excellence, and three Distinguished Technical Communication awards. The Distinguished entries were sent on for international judging.
The presentations were made on Friday, February 7, at the 2003 Awards Banquet held at the Hilton Houston Westchase & Towers. The committee tried something different this year. It not only sent letters telling winners in advance that they had won, it also told winners exactly what award they would receive.
Hats off to Deborah Silvi, general manager of competitions, and her team, who worked tirelessly for eight months to ensure that the competition and banquet were a success. Special commendation goes to
