Sometimes there are indeed two or more different categories into which an entry might fit. In that case, entrants may choose to enter their program in up to two categories, provided their entry applies to the specific criteria stated within that category.
Judges evaluate Communications Programs on four main components: Research and Analysis; Planning and Implementation; Results and Evaluation; and the overall quality of the Entry. For Communication Projects, judges evaluate on five components: Need, Goals and Objectives; Execution; Results; and the overall work plan.
Entries are scored based on the five-point scoring guide below.
Winners will be notified by email in April, and will be recognized at the CPRS Awards Gala dinner, during the CPRS national conference.
