About the National Health
Now in its 24th year, the National Health Information Awards honors high-quality consumer health information. The awards program is organized by the Health Information Resource Center (HIRC), a national clearinghouse for professionals who work in consumer health fields. Other HIRC programs include the Digital Health Awards, and National Women’s Health & Fitness Day.
All materials and/or programs developed and/or distributed between
January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016 are eligible for the competition.
The materials or programs submitted must have been developed
for use by consumers, not health professionals.
The entry window for the 2017 National Health Information Awards is now closed. Please add your name to our mailing list for information on future announcements.
Entry Categories and Divisions:
There are 21 entry categories and 17 entry divisions for the 2017 competition.
$65 per entry
(Certain categories require an extra fee.)
Gold, Silver, Bronze and Merit certificates will be awarded by Class, Division and Category. Using a rating scale of 1 to 100 points, a panel of consumer health experts from across the nation will judge the entries based on content, format, success in reaching the targeted audience and overall quality. All judges’ decisions are final. Winners will be announced in late summer.
2017 winners will receive Gold, Silver, Bronze, or Merit recognition certificates, a one-year license to use the awards program logo for marketing, listing on healthawards.com, and an awards packet with sample media materials to help promote the achievement.
