The essay topic is “What will kick-start YOUR career?” Write about how you plan to achieve your career goals and how that distinguishes you from the crowd. Don’t feel like you have to follow a strict essay format…the most important thing is to be creative and have fun! Write a poem, short story, whatever fits you and your personality the best 🙂

Any PSWE member who is at least a sophomore engineering major may participate. Essays must be submitted by October 1, 2013. Go to for more information about the contest and to submit your essay. Let’s get writing!!
