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.
