Associated Press Sports Editors needs judges for the upcoming digital contest. The contest will be judged in four categories from May 15 to Dec. 31. During that period, there will be two separate mandatory two-week windows (chosen randomly), during which judges will be required to look at every website at least once. Judges will also be allowed to look at websites at their leisure during the rest of the year. A top 10 and honorable mentions in each category will be revealed at the start of the Winter Conference in 2016. If you are interested in judging, please contact Dana Sulonen, APSE interim second vice president, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some judges may have already volunteered with Todd Adams earlier in the year. However, due to extenuating circumstances, we are starting from zero on the 2016 contest. Therefore, if you would like to judge, please email Dana at the address above.
