$5,000 in Scholarship Prizes for 'How Engineers Make a World of Difference"

IEEE-USA is launching the organization's second online engineering video competition for undergraduate students on "How Engineers Make a World of Difference," and will award four scholarship prizes totaling $5,000 to the undergraduates who create the most effective 90-second video clips aimed at an 11-to-13-year-old student audience.
The clips should reinforce engineers' contributions to the quality of life and convey how engineering can be a creative and rewarding career. Winning entries will be announced and shown during Engineers Week, 15-21 February 2009.

The competition is open to all U.S. undergraduate students in engineering, computer science and information technology. Entries can be provided by individuals or teams, with at least one undergraduate participant who is an IEEE Student Member. More than one video entry is permissible. Entries must be submitted through YouTube by midnight Eastern Time on
Friday, 16 January 2009. The competition will be judged by two engineering
graduate students, Andrew Quecan and Suzette Presas; and Nate Ball,
engineer-host for PBS' "Design Squad."
