Tips for Winning

Remember that the RH Dougherty Awards judging panel will see many entries. Cut through the competition with a short, concise entry and links to supporting documents judges can view.

Keep it Simple:

  • A concise summary.
  • Professional writing.
  • Good images - event pictures, publication images.
  • Budget evaluation. This can be written and not a spread sheet
  • Project evaluation - how it was measured, the tracking method, the result.
  • Compile your entry as the project progresses and uploaded into online entry form.

Some other points for entering, and more importantly, winning awards:

  • Experience is the best teacher - practice makes perfect. You may not win the first time, but you will certainly have a better idea when you next apply.
  • Enter the right category - do your research, and make sure you enter the right project in the right category.
