“Mega Engineering” Video Contest

Engineering For U logo

Human travel to Mars. Building sustainable cities. Developing new, large-scale energy sources like fusion or creating better medicines and technologies to improve health.

There’s a name for such ambitious projects that span disciplines and geographical boundaries: Mega Engineering. And it’s the theme for the National Academy of Engineering’s 3rd annual Engineering for You video contest (E4U3).

This year’s contest asks participants to create a 1- to 2-minute video that (1) introduces and highlights the importance of a particular mega-project to people and society; and (3) suggests contributions to its development.

Individuals or teams can compete in one of four categories: middle school students, high school students, undergraduate or graduate students, and the general public.

The “Best Video Overall” will be awarded $25,000, with a People’s Choice Award of $5,000. Top videos in each competition category are eligible for a prize of up to $5,000.

The deadline for submitting videos is May 31, 2016.
