The STC Houston 2005-2006 Competitions wrapped up at the annual awards banquet
held February 3 at the Houston Club. More than 90 people attended the banquet,
including award winners, family, and friends.
STC Houston traded entries with Southern California region chapters, who suggested
a new process for evaluation this year. Instead of exchanging written evaluation
forms for entries, we exchanged online evaluation forms.
The result was improved readability of judges’ comments and, for the most
part, quicker return of evaluation forms.
We had a great response to our call for entries this year in the Technical
Art, Technical Publications, and Online Communication competitions.
This year we received 110 entries, submitted by individuals and companies in Houston
and Austin. This number was a significant increase from last year’s submissions.
It looks like we’re doing a good job of getting the word out about STC!
Of the 110 submissions, 75 won awards! Ten entries won an award of Distinguished
and were submitted to the STC international competitions. Winners in those competitions
will be announced at the STC Annual Conference in Las Vegas this May.
