How can I be considered for a Rising Star accolade?
I know it's a random selection, but is there anything I can do to get noticed on Hub Pages? I'm already quite active in the forums and the answers panel, and hop hubs sometimes too. Also, how long are you a member of HP until you don't qualify as a 'newbie' anymore?
I don't know if there's a trick to it. Simply write as well as you can and one of your hubs may be chosen. Of the three hubs I had nominated, two of them had scores in the high 70s, didn't have many views, and I didn't think they were my best work, but both of them won the award.
The only time I think of people as newbies is if they're still in boot camp. Once they've written their five hubs that push them out of boot camp, I consider them a vet. But that's me and different people have different ideas about what constitutes being a newbie.
I have noticed that some people are extremely good at presentation and get high marks. They tend to be excellent writers or communicators, use the capsules decently, as well as the other things required for Stellar Hubs: polls, videos, links, decent pictures, titles and sourcing ...
Let the work look neat and not too bulky. separate your paragraphs well, make sure its well researched and finally watch the writings and presentations of people who get stars.
I believe that the Hub Pages Team are sourcing out new areas and genres from time to time for various reasons, and as in football, some star-achievers may fall into the category of luck (just what we needed at the right time.) Best wishes.
Try this page, and you can be nominated for the Rising Star accolade as long as you've been here for less than six months.

It seems that by some miracle I've won Rising Star not once, but twice! I am totally shocked, pleasantly surprised, and absolutely motivated to keep on writing. I won a few weeks ago on a hub about feeding dogs raw eggs, then again this week for a cookie recipe using coconut oil. At this point in...

How can I find out which of my hubs was awarded Rising Star?I see I received the accolade badge, but besides that there was nothing to let me know I was even running. So could somebody tell me how to find out which of my hubs got awarded? Thank you.

I just received word that one of my hubs got the Rising Star award! I am so excited and feel so blessed. I enjoy writing so much and these little milestones are a big encouragement. Thanks to all the wonderful hubbers out there for making this place welcoming!

Has anybody had experiences with getting this? Afterwards, did it spur you on to do anything other than continue writing? After I got it, I decided to try for the Apprenticeship programme, to further improve myself. I'd like some advice on what more I can do.Thanks!
