From Stilettos to Steel Toes is hosting a short essay contest to find out where SWE members’ paths might lead them. The essay contest is open to all sophomore, junior, and senior SWE engineers. Also, the essay should be no longer than 350 words. For complete rules and guidelines, please go to this webpage.
If you’re still not convinced, here are the THREE main reasons why you should participate:
1. You will have the opportunity to visualize where your shoes will take you. If you don’t like your destination, buy a new pair.
2. You might win awesome prizes. Individual section winners can win $250 (third place), $500 (second place), or $1,000 (first place). The grand prize (national) winner will receive a scholarship of $2,000 and a fully paid trip to the SWE 2012 National Conference in Houston, Texas. You can buy a lot of cowboy boots while you’re there!
3. You can support your favorite SWE section (PSWE). Every submission equals $100 toward our organization.
