CSCA States Advisory Journal and Manuscript Awards

The Central States Communication Association (CSCA) States Advisory Council will recognize the top journal as well as the top manuscript at the annual CSCA conference in Omaha, Nebraska in April 2019. On behalf of CSCA States Advisory, I invite journal editors of central states journals to consider placing forward your state’s journal as well as a manuscript published in your state’s journal over the past year. We want to recognize the quality of work found in Central States journals.

Specifically, here is what I would like for you to do:


Please send me a PDF copy of your 2018 state journal to my e-mail address:


In the same e-mail that you attach the PDF copy of your state journal, identify one particular article from the publication that you believe exemplifies some of the best work that is published in your state’s journal. Briefly explain in a couple of paragraphs why this article has been selected. Include reasons for the quality in writing, content, connectivity with your organization, and with the discipline. The winner of this award will be forwarded NCA for their manuscript award.

I ask that you submit your entries by Friday, February 1, 2019 at 5:00 pm CST.

The recipient of the CSCA State Journal Award and the recipient(s) of the CSCA State Journal Manuscript Award will be contacted in early March.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact me at or 217-309-2872.
