MG Keith L. Ware Public Affairs Competition
The MG Keith L. Ware Public Affairs Competition recognizes Soldiers and Department of the Army civilian employees for excellence in achieving the objectives of the Army Public Affairs Program. On behalf of the Secretary of the Army, the Office of the Chief of Public Affairs conducts the competition annually in order to recognize, cultivate and inspire excellence within the Army public affairs community.
The KLW Competition aligns as closely as possible with the annual Department of Defense Thomas Jefferson Awards Program, establishes competition criteria and provides the Army with guidance for recognizing the most notable work of its public affairs professionals. The competition includes the Army’s Community Relations Awards program and SGM Dawn Kilpatrick Memorial AUSA Scholarship.
