Eisenhower Professional Writing Competition


In an effort to inform internal and external audiences, share lessons learned, and give back to the profession of arms, 
the Eisenhower Writing Competition recognizes articles written by U.S. Army Europe and Africa personnel. 

The professional articles are written for publication and highlight evolving tactics, techniques and procedures
throughout the command. A panel of U.S. Army Europe and Africa senior leaders score the submissions
and leadership recognizes the authors.
