One of the most asked questions by High School SWENexters is how to select a college that’s the best fit. The SWENext Collegiate Video Competition is a way to begin recruiting SWENexters with a personal view of your university. Collegiate sections are encouraged to create a three-minute video about what makes your college and SWE section great, along with information about your engineering department. All videos will be posted on the SWENext website along with a link to your collegiate section to help SWENexters choose the right institution for them. The top three winning sections chosen by the Outreach Committee and SWENexters will receive an Outreach stipend and SWENext goodies for their future outreach efforts. Visit here to learn more information about this competition and how to apply. Questions about this competition,contact Darcy Andersen.
