2022 Design Competition

We are delighted to announce the arrival of Award Force. Award Force is the #1 awards management software in the United States. 

With our chapter’s purchase of Award Force, we are able to give all participants an enhanced digital platform, making it easy to enter. Managing and judging are also much easier and more secure. The Design Committee has seen the preview of our Chapter’s format and they are excited!
