About the National Health Information Awards:
Now in its 21st 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, 2013 and December 31, 2013 are eligible for the competition.
The materials or programs submitted must have been developed
for use by consumers, not health professionals.
The entry window for the 2014 National Health Information Awards is now closed. Please add your name to our mailing list for information on future announcements.
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. Winners will be announced in late summer.
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 $56.
(Certain categories require an extra fee.)
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.
