About the National Health Information Awards:
Now in its 20th year, the National Health Information Awards program
honors high-quality consumer health information. The awards program is organized by the Health Information Resource Center (HIRC), a national clearinghouse for consumer health professionals who work
in consumer health education fields.
All materials and/or programs developed and/or distributed between
January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2012 are eligible for the competition.
The materials or programs submitted must have been developed
for use by consumers, not health professionals.

Gold, Silver, Bronze and Merit certificates will be awarded by Class, Division and Category. Using a rating scale of 1 to 100 points, a panel of consumer health experts from across the nation will judge the entries based on content, format, success in reaching the targeted audience and overall quality. All judges’ decisions are final. Award packets will be sent to winners in August.
For each entry, select a single Class (type of information being submitted), Audience (the intended audience for your entry), Division (type of organization that produced the entry), and Category (type of entry being submitted).
The basic entry fee is $54.
(Certain categories require an extra fee — see entry form for details.)
All award winners will receive a colorful award certificate, Web site listing, one-year license to use the awards program logo for marketing and promotional purposes, and an awards packet with sample media materials to help promote recognition of your award.
