Read our award-winning case studies

All SNCR Excellence Award case study submissions are provided to a panel of judges comprised of a group of SNCR’s Fellows, led the SNCR Best Practices committee. The committee reviews and scores each entry based on its own merit on a scale of 1-8. The judges’ scores are tallied and averaged to reach the final score for the entry.

Judging criteria include: technical excellence, creativity and innovation, effectiveness (identifying and successfully responding to business goals), measurable outcomes, and overall success.

Any entry scoring between a 4-6 will be honored with a Commendation of Merit. Any entry scoring 6+ – 8 will become a finalist for an Award of Excellence. Each of these finalists will receive a Commendation of Excellence, but the entry in each category with the highest score will be the winner for the category. (If no entry in a category scores above a 6, no Award of Excellence will be granted in that category.)
