Maj. Gen. Keith L. Ware Public Affairs Competition
The Maj. Gen. 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 Sgt. Maj. Dawn Kilpatrick Memorial AUSA Scholarship.
The major changes from last year to this year are the addition of print categories N: Infographic, R: Public Affairs Officer Rising Star the Year, S: Master Communicator of the Year, broadcast category N: Social Media Video; and sergeants first class are now eligible to compete in Paul D. Savanuck Military Print Journalist of the Year and John T. Anderson Military Broadcast Journalist of the Year.
We are accepting nominations for the U.S. Army Public Affairs Hall of Fame "Class of 2016". The U.S. Army Public Affairs Hall of Fame was established in 2000 to provide a prestigious and visible means of recognizing and honoring Soldier and civilian Army Public Affairs professionals who made lasting, significant contributions to the profession, history and traditions of Army Public Affairs.
