Information for Minnesotan Judges

Use good judgment. Sign Up Today!

Volunteering as a judge is a wonderful opportunity to see what other organizations are doing and how they are doing it. Judging may inspire you, and it may validate the work you’ve been doing.

The time commitment depends on the number of entries in the category you will be judging. Last year most categories received between 3 and 8 entries. We ask judges to offer thoughtful comments about each entry, so it's not uncommon for judging all entries in a category to take a couple of hours.

You'll be Judging Entries from Texas

For the second year, MAGC is swapping judging duties with TAMIO, a government communicators association in Texas.

This means you can judge a category you’re an expert in—no need to worry that you can't judge a category because your organization has an entry in that category. Nice. 

And you’ll get a bunch of fresh ideas from another part of the country.

One other perk—judges get a $10 discount on a ticket to the awards banquet!

Judges must...

  • Have at least three years professional experience in the categories they judge.
  • Be available to review all the submissions in their category by the deadline.

Assignments will be sent out around the last week in March and completed judging forms will be due April 19.
