1999-2000 Technical Communication Award Competition Winners
Each year, the Washington, DC - Baltimore Chapter conducts the Austin T. Brown Technical Communication Award Competition for high school students in grades 10-12. This local competition supports excellence in technical communication at the high school level and encourages the next generation to consider technical writing as a career goal. The best papers win cash awards: $1000 for Distinguished, $500 for Excellence, $300 for Merit, and $50 for Honorable Mention. The papers are judged in terms of their objectivity, clarity, overall impact, and the extent to which the significance of the topic is shown.
The local competitions are held in the fall. The top winners are entered in the International Student Technical Writing Competition (ISTWC), which takes place in February. This competition provides a unique avenue for international recognition. Awards in the international competition are $1000 for Distinguished, $500 for Excellence, $300 for Merit, and a certificate for Honorable Mention.
