THE Mca would like to invite you to SUBMIT A PROJECT FOR OUR 2021 Awards program - (For work completed in 2020)
The MCA Awards Program will look a little different this year. Traditionally, we presented the winning projects during our Annual Awards Banquet concluding the MCA Annual Conference. This year, since the Annual Conference will not taking place in person due to COVID 19 restrictions, we will be moving our awards program to a Virtual Event using our Blog and Social Media channels. The awards nomination and judging process will stay the same. The MCA will be announcing the project winners via our social media channels with an article dedicated to the project and shareable link.
Winning Projects will receive the following:
- Engraved awards plaque
- MCA Blog Article (and shareable link) Dedicated to the Specific Project
- Printable .PDF Poster File
- A specific day that the project will be highlighted on all MCA Social Media Platforms
- Option to schedule an in-Person Awards Presentation
