Four of the Northeastern PA Region Gold Key Award recipients are recognized as American Vision Nominees, which automatically advances them to the national competition to compete for American Vision Award for their region, the highest honor of the competition.

The Northeastern PA Region includes Clinton, Columbia, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Lycoming, Monroe, Montour, Northumberland, Pike, Schuylkill, Snyder, Susquehanna, Union, Wayne, and Wyoming Counties.

The Gold Key Awards Exhibition displaying the work of all Gold Key and American Vision Award recipients is April 4–28.
