Last year, we held the Eighth Annual Contest for New and Aspiring Translators. Every year, a group of screeners and judges help to narrow the entries and decide the winners. We would like to establish a committee similar to those we have for other JAT activities.
The committee's tasks would include

finding judges and screeners
developing a timeline
obtaining permission to use copyrighted materials if necessary
planning and implementing PR activities
creating updates for the JAT website
collecting translations submitted by the entrants
coordinating with the screeners and judges to confirm the winners
communicating with the winners
organizing an award-giving ceremony at IJET
