congratulations!

 

NEW The Sport and Exercise Psychology Section is the winner of the 2017 Best CPA Section Newsletter Award for their FALL 2016, Issue #2 submission.


The CPA recognizes the efforts that the CPA's Sections put into creating and maintaining their newsletters. Section newsletters serve as an important communication tool to help keep members informed and involved in the Section and in CPA. In recognition of this effort, we would like to give an award for the best newsletter distributed by a CPA Section. The winning Section will receive a monetary award of $250 and will be highlighted on the bulletin & news area of the CPA's website.

To be considered for the award, Sections must send an electronic copy of their best newsletter issue from 2016 to CPA (sections@cpa.ca) by February 1, 2017. The CPA's Membership Committee will review all the entries received and select a winner. The following criteria will be used to determine the winner:

  • Informational content (consider if it contains just Section info or also includes general CPA info)
  • Knowledge translation (consider the clarity of writing; whether articles are useful to just section/other psychologists/other professions/public)
  • Engagement/interest (consider if topic, headline, bi-line, and/or use of pictures or illustrations pulls the reader in)
  • Design/creativity (consider newsletter name banner; overall organization and layout; visual impact)
  • Contributions from multiple individuals (consider the number of contributors relative to the size of the section; if there is a comments/feedback section for readers)
  • Student content (consider whether there is inclusion of written student contributions ; if there is information relevant to students, such as jobs or placements)
  • Francophone content (consider whether there is inclusion of content written in French; if there is information of relevance to Francophone members or Francophone-specific matters)
