The online submission system for the 2017 Star Awards is up and ready to receive your entries.
Remember, this year all Star Awards submissions will be made online. The deadline for submitting your entries is Monday, Nov. 6. Work done between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017 is eligible for the 2017 Star Awards. You'll find a detailed list of the rules for entering and category descriptions on the external submission site, but we also wanted to provide you with some tips for entering.
- If you entered last year, you can use the same account you or your district entered with or create a new one. This is separate from your TSPRA member area account, so you can't just use your TSPRA log-in unless you set up an account with the same user name and password.
- If your district wants to enter a large number of awards on the same invoice, then the easiest way to do this will be to create one log-in and let everyone submitting awards use it to input their entries.
- You can save your entries down at the bottom even if they're in an incomplete state so you can return to them later. Once they're finished, adding them to your cart puts them on your list of entries but doesn't submit them or generate an invoice. You can still make changes to that entry or add additional entries at that point.
- Once you click Checkout your invoice is generated and your entries are finalized, so be sure that everything you want on that invoice is included in your cart.
