Congratulations to AWAI’s 2018 $10K Challenge Winner

Every year, dozens of AWAI members submit copy to help promote AWAI programs and resources as part of the $10K Challenge. The copywriter responsible for the best-performing copy is selected as the winner.

In 2018, the honor goes to Candice Lazar, who was recognized at this year’s FastTrack to Copywriting Success Bootcamp and Job Fair.

As part of her win, Candice secures a $10,000 contract with AWAI — that’s $10,000 worth of assignments over the next year, working directly with the AWAI marketing team.

“I couldn't be more excited to win the $10K Challenge. When I first discovered AWAI and saw the Challenge on the website, I remembered wondering what it would take to win it one day. It turns out they'll teach you everything you need to know!” says Candice. “I'm grateful for everything I've learned from AWAI and am honored to be working so closely with them.”

Congratulations, Candice! Everyone at AWAI can’t wait to work with you over the next year.

Candice has previously worked for a few financial publishers including Weiss Research, Profits Run, and Charles Street Research. All clients she says she can trace back to AWAI spec opportunities.

One of her biggest clients right now, whom she’s working on retainer with, is Jeff Walker.

Candice has a full plate, but she still has plenty of opportunity to indulge in her love of travel.

Could you be next year’s $10K Challenge winner? It’s open to all active AWAI members, and you can get all the details here.
