Communication Awards are open to all members of VAAEA. The Communication Awards Program is defined in more detail in the December 2015 edition of The County Agent. The abstract format, including a sample, are provided to help with your submissions.
Communications Awards submissions are not only a great way to critique your work against your peers, but they are also accompanied by a financial incentive. State winners will receive $50. Sponsors permitting, national finalists receive $250 and national winners receive $500.
Please be mindful that if you apply for an awards category as a collaborative effort, you must receive the collaborators permission prior to submitting the application. Once again, thank you all for the outstanding work and commitment to extending knowledge across the Commonwealth.
