APHON Counts Writing Award

The APHON Counts Writing Awards are given annually to recognize contributing authors of APHON Counts. One award is given for an article submitted for the My Most Memorable Case column two awards are given for an article submitted for either a Feature Article, or one of the columns published in each issue of the newsletter.

The recipients of the APHON Counts Writing Awards are selected by the editorial board of the APHON Counts newsletter. The My Most Memorable Case recipient receives $50 in APHON Bucks and the other two awards receive $100 in APHON Bucks. Both award categories receive recognition at the annual conference business and awards luncheon, APHON Counts, in a press release, and an announcement is sent to the recipient's employer.
