It is our hope that these awards infuse a strong spirit of friendly competition, increase collaborative research among peers, and encourage a consistent if not increased level of engagement in research by ASHA members and by CSD professionals. The award-winning articles demonstrate the importance of CSD professionals not only performing research and conducting scholarly studies but also writing about, reporting on, publicizing, and sharing that research with colleagues and the CSD community.
