NGS Newsletter Competition Deadline is Approaching

The deadline for submissions to the NGS Newsletter Competition is 31 December 2011.

The NGS Newsletter Competition is open to NGS member organizations, and all entries must be submitted by the society or association. Submissions by individuals are not eligible. Organizations may enter in one of the three major categories: (1) major genealogical and/or historical societies, (2) county/local genealogical and/or historical societies, or (3) family associations. Three copies of two consecutive issues from the current year must be submitted along with the completed entry form (available on the NGS website). Mail the materials to: NGS Newsletter Competition, National Genealogical Society, 3108 Columbia Pike, Suite 300, Arlington, Virginia 22204-4370. 

A panel of three judges will review both issues of the newsletter using the following criteria: material interest, variety, and originality; writing and editing quality; readability and attractiveness; and overall publication makeup. For additional information go to the NGS website. The panel of judges’ scores and comments will be tallied and evaluated. The president of each entry organization will be notified of the competition results. The notification will include the judges’ comments.

The winning society or association in each of the three categories will receive a complimentary one-year organizational NGS membership and a feature in the NGS Magazine. A representative of the winning organization will be presented a certificate at the opening session of the NGS Family History Conference in Cincinnati, Ohio.
