Last call to enter Media & Communications Contest

The American Legion Media & Communications Contest wants to recognize the hard work Legion Family members do to promote the good of the organization across media channels. The contest provides an opportunity for all Legion Family members – American Legion, Sons of The American Legion, Auxiliary and Legion Riders – to submit their work and be recognized.

Ready to enter the Media & Communications Contest? Visit to get started. Deadline for contest submissions is April 15. So don’t delay!

The Media & Communications Contest has seven categories for submissions: websites, publications, visual media, social media campaigns, editorial/news writing, editorial/informational writing and public relations/community outreach. 

There is a $5 fee per entry submission. Please note: all entries must have been published during the 2023 calendar year.

Award plaques will be given to division winners in each category. And two additional awards will be presented – Innovation Award and Chairman’s Award. Winners of these two awards will receive a plaque and $50 Emblem Sales credit.

Innovation Award: This rewards innovation in media. Nominees may submit for this but don't have to for consideration. Judges will consider the award winners and other nominees to select a winner that demonstrated true innovation. 

Chairman's Award: A “Best in Show” award. Nominees don't submit specifically for this. The judges consider award winners and select one that goes above and beyond the others. 

Media & Communications Commission members and Media & Communications National Headquarters staff will select the winners in each category. The winners will then go before the entire Media & Communications Commission for approval during Spring Meetings in May.  

Don’t wait! Start submitting your work now for us to recognize you.
