2014 NEWSLETTER CONTEST INFORMATION

The RE Committee is already preparing for the 2014 Newsletter Contest. Below you will find the rules for the 2014 contest and info on where to send your submissions.
An important change is the fact that electronic copies of the newsletter can also be submitted in PDF format for scoring. With this change we are expecting a significant increase in the number of entrants. To keep the scoring of submissions at a workable level we are limiting the number of clubs to the first fifty.
A tip: Please read the Rules and understand the submission time lines and the 6 areas for which points are awarded. I would also make these areas of the newsletters obvious to the Judges so you donít risk the chance of it being overlooked.
The RE Committee believes this contest is an excellent way to recognize the hard work and effort put into keeping a Clubís Members informed through their Newsletters.

As always if you have questions about the Contest or if I can be of help with any NCCC related matters, please send me an e-mail or give me a call.
