Your chance to compete in the 28th annual Golden Spike Awards is here. So get your entries together and don’t miss the submission deadline.

Details about the Golden Spike Awards Gala (slated for mid-November) will be provided shortly, but the entry process is outlined below.


There are four steps to the entry process:

Save the following materials to a thumb drive:

  • Completed entry form (Download: PDF or WORD)
  • 100-word At-a-Glance
  • Summary (Two pages for Campaigns; One page for Tactics)
  • Supporting materials in digital format as appropriate (PDF, MOV, Word, etc.)

NOTE: Entries must have been created primarily in Utah between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015, and been executed during that time frame.

Place the following materials into an envelope no larger than 9”x12”

  • Thumb drive (clearly labeled with entry information – that way the right files are used to judge the right entry)golden-spike-entry-materials-example
  • Printout of completed entry form (Download: PDF or WORD)
  • Attach a label to the outside of the envelope that includes the following:
    • Entry Title
    • Division # / Category # / Section #
    • Name of organization
    • Name of person submitting entry
    • Email of person submitting entry

Pay Entry Fee

Online payments are accepted for all entries. Provide the appropriate contact information and award entry title (or titles) and select the number of entries you’d like to pay for. You may pay for multiple entries at the same time by changing the dropdown number next to the field at the bottom of the form labeled: Number of Tickets. Although this field specifies ‘tickets,’ it’s for GSA entries. An online payment portal will be available in the future for purchasing tickets to the mid-November Golden Spike Awards dinner and ceremony. More details about the Golden Spike Awards Gala will be announced shortly.
