It’s time for the Annual Lodge Website Award Contest!

Time to dust-off your Lodge website, make any updates and improvements, and then submit it for the Annual Lodge Website Award Contest. All website entries are submitted to the FSEA which will then submit the state winning free-standing website to the Grand Lodge for national judging.

Websites will fall into two categories: (1) Independent free-standing websites or (2) Grand Lodge Virtual websites. Judging will be done by FSEA’s Director of Marketing and Webmaster, Greg Weis, and Director of Information Technology, Steve Harmon.
