Part of the San Diego County Engineering Council (SDCEC) purpose is to help promote Engineering and Technology STEM Society nonprofits and outreach initiatives. One way we do this is to recognize the competition wins and winners throughout the year of local aspiring engineers, teams, clubs and society chapters. If you know of individuals or teams who have won regional-national-global recognitions in the greater San Diego community, please let us know by completing the attached form. And don't forget to consider recognizing those individuals or projects who are making a difference through one of our project or individual service awards.
