WANTED: FINGERS THAT ARE FAST AND ACCURATE!!

THE HONORABLE JOHN R. TUNHEIM ANNUAL REALTIME SPEED CONTEST

Friday, October 7, 2016

It’s time to cross one of the items off your bucket list! It’s time to set aside your fears and trepidations and make the decision that this is the year you are going for it. Or, it may be time to focus on some writing time on the day before you are sitting for the FCRR examination – especially since there is prize money involved! Whatever your reasons, we would love for you to join us in New Orleans to participate in USCRA’s annual realtime speed contest.

The USCRA Board of Directors has approved a prize of $300 for the highest scoring test that qualifies with the requisite score. The first place qualifier will also take home the contest’s traveling trophy to display in your home or office for one year.

The Realtime Speed Contest is five minutes of recorded two-voice Q&A material at 230 words per minute. A score of 96% accuracy is required to qualify. Candidates who qualify may be eligible to receive .4 CEUs from NCRA (allowed once per three-year CEU cycle). The top three contestants are recognized at the Saturday evening activities.

Entry fee is $50. USCRA membership and a convention registration of at least one day are required to compete. Watch for convention details to come. For more information, e-mail Brenda Fauber, Reporter Testing Committee Chair, at fcrr.uscra@gmail.com.
