Circle of Excellence Award Areas and Categories
Big changes coming for 2022
Based on recommendations from an Awards Task Force of CASE volunteers and staff, next year’s awards will look quite different. Entries will be considered for recognition based on their district or region, in addition to globally. There also will be lower entry fees, as well as categories based on staff size. There also will be many changes and additions to the categories described below. More details will be provided this fall.

A few tips
- Most materials meet the criteria for more than one category. Which one(s) you enter is entirely up to you. (On rare occasions where an entry does not meet the entry requirements for a category, CASE and the judge coordinators will move the entry to the most proper category.)
- You can submit the same entry for as many categories as it is eligible. (Just note that each entry requires its own entry fee.)
- Judges are looking for innovative ideas, impressive and measurable results and outcomes, judicious use of resources, and best practices that other institutions can adapt and implement for their benefit.
- Check out previous winners in a category to see if your entry is comparable.
