Chapter Awards and Recognitions

STC Chicago cannot survive without the people who donate their time and talents to helping the chapter run. So every
spring, we celebrate special volunteers who have exceeded expectations during the previous calendar year by honoring them with the following awards.

Distinguished Chapter Service Award

The Distinguished Chapter Service Award (DCSA) is an honor at the international level of STC that recognizes an individual’s exemplary effort, energy, and dedication to their community and its activities. This is the highest level of recognition that a member can receive for service to their community. Award winners retain this lifetime achievement award for the community they serve. For additional information about nominations for this award, see the STC website.

President’s Award

The STC Chicago President’s Award was established in 1993 to recognize significant volunteer contributions of chapter members.

Volunteer of the Year Award

Established in 2010, the Volunteer of the Year Award was created to acknowledge ongoing dedication to the chapter through volunteer efforts and commitment to the technical communication profession.

Above and Beyond Award

STC Chicago established the Above and Beyond Award in 2012 to recognize an individual that accepts the responsibilities for a unique and challenging chapter event or experience. In the role, the individual contributes an extraordinary effort and substantial
personal time to ensure the successful completion of the experience.

Chapter Star Award

Established in 2011, the STC Chicago Chapter Star Award was created to acknowledge a chapter member for outstanding service and volunteer efforts for a single major event.

Golden Support Award

Established in 2016, the Golden Support Award was created to acknowledge a business or group that has shown continued exceptional long-term professional support of the STC Chicago chapter.
