Communication Awards

See the Award Winners!

Each year SIGUCCS sponsors Communication Awards to recognize outstanding web sites, publications and promotional materials produced by university and college computing centers. These awards recognize excellence in developing useful and appealing materials to enhance user services and offer attendees an opportunity to garner ideas to enhance their own efforts. A list of past winners can be seen on the ACM SIGUCCS website.

The awards will be presented at the SIGUCCS 2007 Fall Conference, October 7-10, 2007, in Orlando, Florida. Winning entries will be displayed and available for perusal during the conference. Participants and any conference attendees are also encouraged to display their own materials in the Documentation Room at the conference.

In each category, the top entry will receive a "Best of Category" award, while other winners will receive an "Award of Excellence." In recognition of the differences in resources available to institutions of varying size, there may be two groups of competitors in a category. Schools with fewer than 4000 students will compete in Group 1 and those with 4000 or more in Group 2. The "Best of Category" award winners will be asked to present their materials at the conference Poster session. All award winners will be invited to a special recognition breakfast, which will be held during the conference.

Categories for Awards

Guidelines and Deadline


Note: The "Best in Category" winners in each category will be asked to judge the communication awards next year.

To submit your entry please go to the official entry site.

The official entry site provides detailed information about the entry deadline, the categories and the criteria required for submitting entries.

Spruce up your web pages, how-to-guides, training materials and newsletters. We want to see yours submitted! These materials provide a wonderful way to show others what you are doing and to allow others to gain insights into how to develop or enhance materials of their own.
