Students, faculty encouraged to enter national engineering video contest
9:08 a.m., Jan. 27, 2014--In celebration of its 50th anniversary, the National Academy of Engineering invites students and faculty to produce videos highlighting past, present or future engineering innovations.
The University of Delaware’s College of Engineering is encouraging Blue Hens from all disciplines to enter a submission for the “Engineering For You Video Contest,” which offers a grand prize of $25,000.
The competition is open to individuals or teams in six competition categories. Entries must be submitted by March 31, 2014.
Contest entrants can submit one- to two-minute videos showcasing engineering contributions that have enhanced the well-being of society in the last 50 years or the endless possibilities of what engineers will create over the next 50 years.
Prizes include a $25,000 best video overall award, a $5,000 people’s choice award and a $5,000 prize for the top videos in each competition category.
A panel of engineering, film and media professionals will judge submissions on creativity in content selection and presentation, anticipated breadth of public appeal, and effectiveness in highlighting engineering achievements that serve human welfare and the needs of society.
Winners will be notified by Sept. 1.
Visit the Engineering For You Video Contest website for full details on entry categories and prizes.
