General guidelines and eligibility

All IEEE Student Branches and Branch chapters are eligible for the Student Branch Web Site contest. Each Student Branch may enter at most one Web site, regardless of the number of Branch chapters present. To enter your Branch, simply send an e-mail message to your Regional Students Activities Chair (RSAC), Regional Student Representative (RSR), and the contest administrator with the subject "IEEE Student Branch Web Site Contest." Please include the:

  • URL of your Web site;
  • name of the Student Branch it belongs to;
  • IEEE region you are in;
  • e-mail address of the Web site contact or administrator;
  • name and e-mail address of Web site contact (if different from the above).

Also make sure that you follow the specific submission rules as outlined by your Regional Student Activities Chair (RSAC).

Each region will select a regional jury that will decide the regional winner(s) to be forwarded to the Students Committee for judging in the international contest. Based on the judging criteria, the Student Activities Committee will give international awards as listed below:

  • First place: US$1,000
  • Second place: US$750
  • Third place: US$500
  • Honorable mention: US $250 each

A customized award certificate will also be provided.
