$10,000 IN SCHOLARSHIP PRIZES TO BE AWARDED IN IEEE-USA ONLINE VIDEO COMPETITION ON 'HOW ENGINEERS MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE'

WASHINGTON (11 October 2007) -- IEEE-USA is launching an online engineering video competition for undergraduate engineering students on "How Engineers Make a World of Difference," and will award seven scholarship prizes totaling $10,000 to the undergraduate students 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 help debunk engineering stereotypes. In addition to the scholarship prizes, winning entries will be shown during National Engineers Week 2008 and displayed on IEEE.tv and SPECTRUM Online.

The competition is open to all U.S. undergraduate students in engineering. 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 allowed. Entries must be submitted through YouTube by midnight Eastern Time on Friday, 18 January 2008. The competition will be judged by two engineering graduate students and Nate Ball, engineer-host for PBS' "Design Squad."
