Engineers Week began in 1951 celebrating the birthday of one role model considered to be our nation's first engineer: George Washington. Washington, the father of our nation, was noted for his engineering survey work. Engineers Week is about recognizing and celebrating engineers and the contributions engineers make in the world around us. The 2021 theme for Engineers Week is "Imagining Tomorrow".
The San Diego County Engineering Council (SDCEC) celebration for the 2021 Engineers Week will be through a virtual Festival and by honoring some of the early Engineering Legends. An Engineering Legend is a role model who represents the originality, innovation and advancement of the engineering profession. Through each sponsorship, we will highlight an Engineering Legend to inspire a whole new generation about the accomplishments engineers have made. The SDCEC invites you to participate by sponsoring an Engineering Legend. There are two basic ways to participate:
FOUNDERS SUPPORT LETTER - For nonprofit STEM Organizations / Engineering Society Chapters
FESTIVAL SPONSORSHIP LETTER - For other individuals, companies and for profit organizations
The links above are Festival Sponsorship Letters. The letters have additional sponsorship benefits. Please forward these letters to your organizations, company leaders and engineering champions.
All Sponsors and Supporters will be recognized during the Festival, the Digital Program, on our website and social media. In addition, the sponsored Engineering Legends will also be featured through our promotional materials.
TRAILBLAZER SPONSOR $1500 - Up to three engineering legends, three days of festival promotional announcements, festival Logo placement each day and SDCEC homepage website visibility.
