Every year the National Academy of Engineering sponsors an engineering essay contest on the EngineerGirl website for students across the nation. The contest for this year, entitled “Imagine That! Engineering Innovation”, has just been posted, and I am writing to you in hopes that you may be able to help us reach interested students and educators in your area. Students in grades 3-12 can compete for cash prizes, and we would like to get the word out to as many students as possible, especially in areas outside of Washington, DC where the contest may be less well-known. If you know of any alternate emails or mailing lists where it would be appropriate for us to send an announcement, please let us know. You can contact us by sending an email to EngineerGirl@nae.edu.
You can find the guidelines and related information about the contest on the EngineerGirl website: http://www.engineergirl.org/CMS/Contest.aspx
The deadline for this year is March 1, 2009. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. We look forward to reading some exciting and creative essays this year, and we hope you will help us to spread the word.
