Filling out the application
Read the question and focus on answering the question accurately: In your responses, it’s important to address each question in the application guidelines. Every entry is carefully reviewed by multiple judges, looking for the points you have been asked to address.
Lead with the best first: Draw your reader in immediately using “who, what, and why” to put your best points up front. Start with a compelling opening sentence that grabs attention and makes the judges want more.
Show, don’t tell: Frame your entry as a story with a beginning, middle, and end. Bring your story to life using proof points and data such as customer ROI and productivity improvements to show, not tell, the judges how your solution solved a challenge.
Use the downloadable application to create a draft of your entry. You can then copy and paste your answers into the online submission form, including uploading any required documents. Note, applications must be submitted via the online form.
The deadline for submitting applications is June 12, 2020. Extensions will not be granted.
