In October, IEEE-USA launched an online video competition for undergraduate engineering students calling on participants to create 90-second video clips, aimed at 11-13 year-olds, that reinforce engineers’ contributions to the quality of life and help debunk engineering stereotypes. IEEE-USA will award seven scholarship prizes totaling $10,000 to the most creative and effective video clips highlighting the theme “How Engineers Make a World of Difference.” The competition is open to all U.S. undergraduate students in engineering and computer science. All entries must be submitted through YouTube by midnight (Eastern Time) on Friday, 18 January 2008.
