Nominations or applications must be submitted by May 15, 2021.


Framed certificates will be awarded to the top competitors in various categories depending on their merit, and the award winning entries will be displayed at the branch meeting. The projects will be judged on originality, quality, accuracy of information, and impact. The committee reserves the right to name no winners in any or all categories.


At the time of submission and judging, the contestant(s) must be a member (or student member) of the North Central Branch of the ESA. Projects submitted should have been completed within the last 1 - 2 years.


Contestants must download and fill out the application form and send supporting documentation. Contestants are encouraged to be creative in selecting categories in which to submit their work. Judges will have final choice of category in which a project will compete.

Nominations or applications must be submitted by May 15, 2021. Applicants should submit enough material to allow judges to fully assess the project. For smaller projects such as bulletins, handouts, or newsletter articles, it is helpful if you can send four copies of the material to be judged. For larger projects such as notebooks, workbooks or books, applicants may submit a single copy along with three copies of a written summary or other supporting materials. For websites or videos submit a summary document with links to the material. Materials submitted will generally not be returned unless a special request is made at the time of submission.
