Use of AI Tools

**ASAE prohibits the use of artificial intelligence (AI) tools****such as text generators, paraphrasers,summarizers, or translators, in the preparation and submission of scholarship, grant, or award applications to ASAE.


The Gold Circle Awards showcase the stories of associations and the differences that associations make in business and society. We expect these stories to be told by the humans who lead, volunteer, participated, or are impacted by the programs.


To ensure the integrity and authenticity of applications, we may use various methods to detect the use of AI tools, such as plagiarism checkers, linguistic analysis, and human review and require applicants to sign a declaration stating that they have not used any AI tools in their applications and that they are solely responsible for the content and quality.


By applying for a Gold Circle Award, you agree to abide by this policy and to submit only your own original work. If you have any questions or concerns about this policy, please contact he Gold Circle Awards staff at goldcircle@asaecenter.org.
