The NASCOE Publicity Committee will award a $500 stipend to an eligible NASCOE member from each area to help defray the cost of attending the 2022 NASCOE convention in Savannah, Georgia on August 7 – 10, 2022. Applicants must submit a 500 words or less essay discussing the following topic:
“This year’s NASCOE convention theme is: Boots on the Beach. What kind of footprints do you plan on leaving on NASCOE?”
Applicants must be regular NASCOE members in good standing. Applicants must have never attended a NASCOE National Convention. Winners must attend the 2022 NASCOE Convention in Savannah, Georgia and be present for all general sessions and the awards banquet. Failure to meet the attendance requirement will result in forfeiture of the Stipend and a full refund of $500 will be required.
Applicants must submit a 500-word essay or less on this year’s topic. Essays must be submitted by April 20, 2022 using the online application process at nascoe.org/publicity.
The judging panel will consist of Area Publicity Chairs. However, Chairs will not be allowed to judge entries from their respective area. Essays will be judged independently and scored on a scale from 1 to 20. Total scores from each judge will be added together to obtain a composite score for each essay. The highest scoring essay from each area will be declared a NASCOE Convention Cash Club winner. Ties will be broken by the National Publicity Chair. Winners will be notified by May 15, 2022.

Verification of hotel reservation and convention registration must be received by the National Publicity Chair no later than July 15, 2022.
