Each year EngineerGirl invites students in grades 3-12 to write an essay on a topic related to engineering. The contest offers students a chance to put their knowledge and creativity to work while introducing them to the role of engineering in society. We may receive as many as 1000 or more entries in a year, and we are in need of engineers who can read 30 or more essays in February and March to help us select the finalists.
If you are an engineer who would like to get a glimpse into the creativity of future generations, this opportunity may be for you. Please submit your information below if you would like to be contacted about scoring the essay contest in the spring.
If you have questions about this program email us at EngineerGirl@nae.edu.

For a chance to win up to $500, imagine how engineering can help your community. Then write a plea to your city or county council to make the case for an infrastructure improvement.
Also, don't forget to look for our EngineerGirl booth at Invent It. Build It.(IIBI) IIBI is a hands-on engineering experience for girls in grades 6-12, and their families. Join 10,000 women engineers from around the globe in Austin, TX on Saturday, October 28th to prove that girls can be engineers!
