The 2015 IEEE Presidents' Change the World Competition is a contest designed to recognize students who identify a real-world problem, apply engineering, science, computing, and leadership skills to solve it, and, thereby, benefit humanity or their community.
Submissions will be initially evaluated and ranked by individuals selected by the IEEE Global Humanitarian Technology Conference. This judging committee will review the entry rankings and select the top 15 finalist projects that best meet the competition criteria. The committee will then forward the selections to the IEEE Presidents for final judging.
The 2014, 2015, and 2016 IEEE Presidents will evaluate the 15 projects and select the prize winners based on the results achieved and their impact on humanity or on a community.
The selections of winners will occur during April 2015 and announcement of the top winner will occur at the IEEE Honors Ceremony in July 2015.
