Only three weeks remain until the August 1, 2012, entry deadline for the first American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Student Paper Competition. The contest, overseen by ANSI and its Committee on Education (CoE), is intended to raise awareness of the strategic importance of standards and conformance among students at the university level.

Students of all disciplines currently enrolled at the associate, undergraduate, or graduate level at any U.S. academic institute of higher learning are eligible to apply.

All submissions must be formatted in accordance with the submission criteria in the paper competition flyer linked below.

All submissions will be screened by members of the ANSI CoE paper competition ad hoc committee to ensure that they meet the required criteria before being forwarded to ANSI for consideration. First, second, and third prize winners will receive awards of $2,500, $1,000, and $500, respectively; however, ANSI reserves the right to award no prizes in accordance with the determination of the judges.

The winning papers will be announced during World Standards Week 2012 at the annual ANSI Awards banquet and ceremony on October 10 and will be presented at an October 12 education event in Washington, D.C.
