Bulletin Contest

Grand Aerie Bulletin Contest

Communication is the key to success within The Fraternal Order of Eagles. Throughout the year, many of our Aeries and Auxiliaries distribute bulletins to members informing them of the latest happenings, upcoming events and more. The Grand Aerie Bulletin Contest is held each year to honor our Aeries and Auxiliaries who best make use of this information outlet. In addition, all participants in the contest will receive feedback from the Grand Aerie Marketing & Communication Department regarding how they can make their bulletin the best it can be. The contest is open to all paper and electronic newsletters on the Local and State level. Entries are divided by class dependent upon the size of the Aerie/Auxiliary. All Aeries/Auxiliaries are encouraged to participate. 


The Beak Wins 2022 Bulletin Contest

Congratulations to the winners of the 2022 Bulletin Contest!  "The Beak" from Calgary, Alberta #2098, has taken home the grand prize for the third year in a row!  The Beak has been competing in the Bulletin Contest for several years and has been improving year after year, now finding itself atop the ladder for the third time.  Listed below are the winners in each of the entry categories.  Winners will receive a plaque and all participants will receive personalized feedback from the judges.  This year, we did not receive any entries in Category C. As the criteria has not been changed in some time, we will be adjusting the category limits prior to the 2023 Bulletin Contest in order to more accurately represent our current population of Aeries/Auxiliaries. Changes to the criteria will be posted to foe.com later this year. We thank all who participated in this year’s contest and look forward to another great competition next year.  To see the winning entry, click on the image below.
