Engineering for You Video Contest Open through March 31

Engineering achievements in the past 50 years have helped land astronauts on the moon, create the Internet, and decode the human genome. What will engineering create in the next 50 years?

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE), NAE has launched a video contest called “Engineering for You.” The contest challenges entrants to create a 1 to 2 minute video showing engineering contributions that serve human welfare and the needs of society occurring anywhere during the time period from 1964 to 2064. The best overall video will be awarded $25,000, with category-specific awards and a People’s Choice award of $5,000 each.
