Winners will be officially announced and presented with an awards certificate (and badge for their blog) at this year’s NEPA BlogCon, which will be held on Saturday, Oct. 15 at Penn State Worthington Scranton (120 Ridgeview Dr., Dunmore).

NEPA BlogCon is designed to bring together bloggers of all experience levels, as well as those interested in marketing, social media, creativity, leadership, technology, and branding. Professional communicators, small business owners, nonprofit organizations, and students alike are welcome to attend.

Tickets to the event are $15 and all proceeds go to fund Squirrel Girls Tech Camp, a girl’s STEM education camp for girls in grades 4-6 in our area.
