Hello Everyone,


Several students have asked for a date extension for when the papers are due for the Region 4 Student Paper Contest for 2014.   Therefore we have decided to extend the deadline for the written paper submission to be May 15th.  Remember that the paper doesn't have to be original; it can just be a reformatting of a past project or paper from courses, hobbies, school projects, summer work, etc.



(PLEASE FORWARD this on to any who might be interested in participating)

(Students/Advisers/Chapter Chairs: Please post the call in a prominent location.)
