Celebrate Great Work: Call for Volunteer Judges

Help celebrate the cream of the crop in publishing and educational advancement! Volunteer with us as a CASE Platinum Awards judge. It’s a great opportunity to recognize game-changing work and give back to the profession.

We’re recruiting awards judges in three specific categories:

  • Best Articles of the Year
  • Best Practices in Digital Communications
  • Excellence in Photography

Platinum Awards finalists are identified from CASE’s district awards programs. Then, volunteer judges choose one entry that deserves platinum status.


How Judging Works

  • Judges participate in a 30-minute judging orientation.
  • You’ll spend no more than a few hours reviewing and scoring entries between March 18–April 30.
  • You’ll participate on a judge panel call by May 1 to select the Platinum Award winner.
  • You’ll help develop the judges’ comments for the winning entries.
  • You’ll have fun and get some fresh ideas!

How to Sign Up

Reply to awards@case.org to sign up or for more information.

If you are not able to judge this year, feel free to pass this along to any of your colleagues (or folks in your network) who you think might be willing to volunteer.
