— Campus relations and scholarship activities
— Activities promoting diversity among journalists
— Professional development and continuing-education programs
— Chapter communications

Awards are given for each category to one large (75 or more members) and one small (fewer than 75 members) professional chapter.

Eligibility

Open to professional SPJ professional chapters. Nominations are made based on a review of chapters' annual reports. Reports are reviewed by each respective Regional Director and one chapter from each region, both large and small, is nominated to advance to the national level. At-Large Directors then review the annual reports of the nominated chapters to select a single large and small chapter for each category within the Circle of Excellence.

Winner Announcement and Presentation

Winners will be announced and honored at the SPJ National Convention.

Deadlines

All annual reports postmarked by their respective deadline will be considered for Circle of Excellence Awards.
