Call for JudgesHow are the entries judged?

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. Click here to see the 2024 judging criteria.

Not all entries receive awards—only entries that receive a minimum point score for a Gold, Silver, Bronze or Merit award receive prizes. All judges' decisions are final.

What do I receive if I win an award?

Award winners will receive a colorful awards certificate, Web site listing, overall winners list, national publicity, and a one-year license to use the awards program logo for promotional use.

I don't see an entry category for websites and online health information. Is there recognition for digital health resources?

Yes, but in a separate awards program. Our Digital Health Awards program recognizes the best Web-based and mobile health content for consumers and professionals.

I may be interested in serving as a judge. How do I apply?

You may fill out our judge application.

Who organizes the National Health Information Awards?
