IEEE President’s Change the World Competition

IEEE President’s Change the World Competition started in 2009 as part of the IEEE 125th anniversary celebration.  The competition recognizes students who develop unique solutions to real-world problems using engineering, science, computing, and leadership skills to benefit their community and humanity. Over the course of several months, teams submit entries identifying a real world problem and how their project will offer a solution which positively impacts humanity. Winners will receive awards ranging from the grand prize of US$10,000 and the distinction of being named “IEEE Student Humanitarian Supreme,” to runner-up prizes of US$5,000, US$2,500, and US$1,000. Winners of the grand prize will also be invited to accept their awards in-person at the IEEE Honors Ceremony in June 2012. More information on eligibility, rules, promotional material, and a link to registration are available. Registration will close 31 January 2012.
