Entries are judged by a panel of experts who are not current advancement professionals in District IV.
Entries may be selected to receive the following awards:
- Gold- presented for an entry judged to be the best of its class.
- Silver- presented for an exceptional entry.
- Bronze- presented for an outstanding entry.
- Honorable Mention- presented, at the judges’ discretion, for an entry that deserves recognition.
Awards are not necessarily given in each category.
