GUIDELINES FOR JUDING BULLETINS

Due consideration should be given by the judges to the facilities that a branch/ladies auxiliary may have for producing a bulletin and you will note that only 20 points are allotted for appearance.

A bulletin that is produced on a duplicating machine may not have the appearance of a bulletin that has been printed by a printer but may contain better material and would therefore be eligible for a greater  number of points.

Bulletins and scrapbooks shall be judged on branch/ladies auxiliary information (Reports or notices of branch/ladies auxiliaries activities, humour, special features, contributions, editorial comments, cover, front page or masthead) and impressiveness (printing, layout, typography, pictures, illustrations, legibility, cartoons), etc.

The scrapbook should be of a reasonable size and contain current year material ONLY. A size comparable to a standard photo album is recommended. All branches/ladies auxiliaries, no matter what the membership may be, are eligible in this category.

Return all other judging sheets and results, with your comments, to the District Chairman who forwarded them to you.  Without this pertinent material, the District Chairman cannot determine District awards.

Revised 2012. Bulletin entries shall be marked with the Branch/Ladies Auxiliary Name, Number, address. Editior's Name, Classification, etc. and addressed to the District Public Relations Chairman with the notation "BULLETIN ENTRY, CLASS "A", "B", "C", "D", or "E", no later than JUNE 15TH of each year.
