Maj. Gen. Keith L. Ware Communications Awards Competition
The Maj. Gen. Keith L. Ware Communications Awards 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 Defense Media Awards, 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.
I am honored to share the results of the 2020 MG Keith L. Ware Communications Awards Competition and the SGM Dawn Kilpatrick Memorial Scholarship. Please join me, Mr. Mike Brady and Sgt. Maj. Paul Schultz in congratulating each of our winning Soldiers and Civilians.
I'd also like to pass along a special thanks to the many dedicated PA and VI leaders who served as judges for this year's competition. This annual competition serves as a testament to the talent across our PA community - at every echelon and in our Civilian, Active, Guard and Reserve ranks - and to the pride each and every one of our members takes in communicating Army priorities.
The top honors in most of our categories are now at the Defense Media Activity for judging in the Defense Media Awards competition. The SGM Dawn Kilpatrick Memorial Scholarship will be presented at the 2021 AUSA Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.
