2016 Contest is Open for Entries

We're looking for your best work!

EPA hosts two annual contests: the Awards of Excellence contest (for your publication as a whole) and the Higher Goals contest (for the individual pieces you and your team produced - writing, photography, design, etc.).

Entries can now be made through our online contest portal with the deadline for entries set for January 8, 2016. All the information you need is under the Contest menu, including a step-by-step guide through the process.

While everyone loves getting awards, the real value of the contest comes with the written critiques provided by qualified professionals who judge the entries. Get confirmation on what you are doing well and learn about areas that need improvement. If you do win an award, that is well-deserved recognition for your dedicated effort.

Entries must come from work published during 2015. Awards will be handed out at the annual convention in Lancaster, Pa., next April.

Here's where you can find what you need to know:

Entry instructions (with links to the online contest website)
Contest categories (print out for reference while you pick out your entries)
