Competition Winners

1993-1994 Technical Communication Award Competition Winners

Note: Because of the nature of paper records, we are missing lists of winners for earlier competitions—if you have any information about earlier winners, please send it to
The winners listed here came from one of the student winners in the 1993-1994 competition.

Each year, the Washington, DC - Baltimore Chapter conducts the Austin T. Brown Technical Communication Award Competition for high school students in grades 10-12. This local competition supports excellence in technical communication at the high school level and encourages the next generation to consider technical writing as a career goal. The best papers win cash awards: $1000 for first place, $500 for second place, $300 for third place, and $50 for honorable mention.

The top winners are entered in the International Student Technical Writing Competition (ISTWC) that takes place in June. This competition provides a unique avenue for international recognition. Awards in the international competition are $1000 for Distinguished, $500 for Excellence, $300 for Merit, and a certificate for Achievement.

Congratulations to all the student writers who won awards in the Washington, DC - Baltimore Chapter's Austin T. Brown Technical Communication Award Competition!
