STC Regional TechComm Competition Results

The results are in, and STC New England congratulates the winning entrants from our chapter! Bose Corporation won not one, but two Awards of Excellence for their SoundWear Companion Quick Start Guide and Online Owner’s Guide. And KVH Industries won an Award of Distinction for their video tutorial Setting Up Tracking Avoidance Zones to Prevent Service Interruptions. Outstanding work!

Even more valuable than an award is the feedback all entrants receive from the judges. Three TechComm professionals review all aspects of each entry during the judging process and deliver a detailed assessment of its strengths and weaknesses.

Serving as a judge takes a significant amount of time, and STC New England would like to thank the following judges from our chapter: Brett Peruzzi, Mike Nelson, Steven Jong, and John Garison. We appreciate your commitment to ensuring each entrant received a fair and thorough evaluation!

We would also like to thank the New York Metro, Atlanta, Houston, Philadelphia, and Rochester chapters for welcoming New England into their combined regional competition. It was a pleasure collaborating with you!

Finally, a big thank you to everyone who entered the competition this year. We hope you had a very positive experience, and we look forward to more great entries next competition season!

Commenting on the relaunch, Chapter President Steven Jong said, “The competition is a way to get recognition for your work. It’s also a valuable way to get dedicated feedback, network with peers, and learn the best practices of our profession. I encourage you to enter, judge, or both.” Please consider participating – you won’t regret it!
