2017 Finalists

The finalists for the 2017 National Awards Competitions are scheduled to be announced on Wednesday, March 8th, first via Twitter (@PSEAwards), and then sent out to the chapter-designated contacts and posted here at PSE.org.  This year, some competitions did not exceed the maximum number of entrants to participate in the finals, to be held during the National Convention in St. Louis, so we are pleased to announce them early, to allow our competitors more time to prepare.
