Entries for the Engineer Girl Writing Contest are now accepted. Three categories of the contests are availavle; elementary school, middle school and high school students. Each category will have three winners.
Launched in 2001, Simil Raghavan and Mary Mathias started the Engineer Girl website in order to bring attention to the amazing opportunities open to women engineers. While more women are entering the engineering field, they are underrepresented in the field. Perhaps you are asking why does this matter? Having a greater number of women in engineering encourages diversity of thought, which ultimately leads to innovation. Economic growth is driven by that innovation, which ultimately makes for a better future for all of us.
Winners in each grade category will receive the prizes listed below: First-place winners will be awarded $500. Second-place entries will be awarded $250. Third-place entries will be awarded $100. All winning entries will be published on the EngineerGirl website. Honorable Mention entries will not receive a cash award, but will be published on the EngineerGirl website.
