I thought some of you may know some students who would be interested in
the following contest. The Celebration of Women in Engineering (CWE) web
site is also a good resource.
Frances K. Morse
National Academy of Engineering Website Design Contest!
Design an "Engineering: It's a Girl Thing" website that inspires girls
to think about a career in engineering. The site should provide information
on what girls need to know and do to explore engineering -- things like
being curious, finding innovative solutions to problems, and taking
science, math, and
technology classes in middle school and high school.
First prize entries will be published on the CWE website and receive
Second prize entries will receive $150, and third prize entries will
$100. The winning entries will be announced during National Engineers
