Contest Overview

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.). Both contests open in mid November and the entry deadline for both is early January. Entries must be from work published during the previous calendar year. Awards are announced in April during the annual EPA convention.

The 2023 contest is now closed. The 2024 contest will open for entries in mid November.

Winners were announced at the Awards Presentation during the EPA convention in Lancaster, PA, April 12-14, 2023.
