NAGC received nearly 500 entries for all Blue Pencil categories, including magazines, articles, news releases, speeches and others. Entries are judged for professional standards including cost effectiveness, production, writing, content, layout, design, quality and creativity.

Agricultural Research has a printed circulation of about 40,000.
