ANSI Announces 2017 Student Paper Competition
January 24, 2017

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI), in conjunction with its Committee on Education (CoE), is pleased to announce its sixth annual student paper competition as part of its ongoing efforts to spread awareness among postsecondary students of the strategic significance of standards and conformance. The competition calls for applicants for submissions that exemplify the 2017 theme: The World in 2050.

Entries are due by 5:00 p.m. ET on Friday, April 28, 2017, and must be written and submitted by college or university student(s) at the associate, undergraduate, or graduate level enrolled in a U.S. academic institute of higher learning. The competition is open to both full and part-time students of all disciplines.

Standards and technical regulations are unsung heroes – while they impact more than 93 percent of global trade, they often go unnoticed by the general public. The student paper competition asks applicants to glimpse into the future and consider how standards—which support innovations such as the Internet of Things, smart phones, robotics, and more—will continue to shape the world in 2050. Submissions should demonstrate specific examples of how standards can influence our advancement: What role will standards have on products, services, and systems on a global scale in years to come?
