MG Keith L. Ware Public Affairs Competition

The Chief of Public Affairs of the Unites States Army announced winners of the 2010 MG Keith L. Ware Public Affairs Competition March 11. The Office of the Chief of Public Affairs conducts the awards program annually on behalf of the Secretary of the Army to recognize, cultivate and inspire excellence within the Army PA community. Army PA practitioners of all components, grades and missions competed in 46 broadcasting, journalism, photography and community relations categories.

The program recognizes outstanding individual and team achievement within the Army PA community and highlights the finest DA internal communication work. The competition reminds PA professionals their labors are understood and appreciated at the highest service levels and encourages participants to try even harder next year. It also provides additional exposure to some of the finest Army stories, images and information campaigns of 2010.

This enduring competition – held annually since 1970 – not only recognizes and cultivates achievement among Army communicators but celebrates and develops a rich Army PA heritage. Contemporary Army broadcasters, journalists, photographers and community relations specialists, meanwhile, are already generating material bound for next year’s competition.
