The 2013 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 evaluated and ranked by a global judging committee, comprised of IEEE Student Activities Committee and Member and Geographic Activities volunteers. The top 10 finalist projects will be selected in April 2013 and forwarded to the IEEE Presidents for final judging.
The 2012, 2013, and 2014 IEEE Presidents will evaluate the top 10 projects and select the final prize winners based on the results achieved and their impact on humanity or on a community.
The announcement of the top winner will occur at the IEEE Honors Ceremony in July 2013.
