Entering the 2013 Circle of Excellence Awards is easier than ever with our streamlined online process. Just follow these easy instructions. The 2013 nomination process is now closed.
Click the category descriptions link. Review the list of categories and select which ones you wish to enter. You can enter as many categories as you like or go back and add categories later.
CASE accepts credit cards for payment of entry fees. The fee is $100 per entry.
At the completion of the payment process, you will receive a receipt via email stating the categories entered and fees paid. CASE’s Federal I.D. Number is 52-1012307.
At the completion of the payment process, you will also receive an email with your unique login key. Please keep this email. If you log out before you are finished or need to go back and edit your work, you will need this key to return to your entry.
The entry menu summarizes all the categories you have entered and paid for. It also outlines the required steps to complete each entry.
Some parts of this form will auto-populate using the information from the registration form. Please fill in the information unique to this entry (such as the title of your entry and contributors) and change any incorrect information.
Each category has a set of questions that must be answered before completing this section. Please supply attachments and information as called for in the instructions. Attachments can be no larger than 20 MB.
Print out your entry and cover sheet with mailing instructions for your category. Mail it, along with hard copies of any supporting materials asked for in the category description, to the person listed in the mailing instructions (unless the cateogry specifically instructs for online entry only). Please do not mail your entry to CASE unless the instructions specifically call for it.
Caution: Be sure to give your entries ample time to arrive at the judging locations. Packages sent by overnight couriers from international locations outside of the United States can take up to a week to arrive.
Entries for certain catorgories are completely online, and there is no need to mail your entry to the judging location. Please carefully check the instructions for each category. You should always print out a copy for your records.
This very important step concludes the online entry process and records your application with CASE. Be sure to click the "Record at CASE" button when finished with all entries. You should receive an email notifying you of your completed submission.
