Engineers Week 2020 Contest

Save the Dates! SAE’s Engineers’ Week Contest is February 17-21, 2020

To help commemorate 2020 Engineers’ Week, we’re holding a contest for our members. Each day during that week (February 17-21) the SAE Membership Team will pose questions surrounding automated vehicle technology in the Open Forum discussion group. You'll have until the opportunity to reply with a written response or a video. The Membership Team will select a winner every day. The daily winners will receive a $100 Amazon giftcard…and then a Grand Prize of a $500 Amazon giftcard will be awarded to the best overall answer out of the week's five winners.

You can answer the questions by joining the discussion thread here.
