Fun Bridge Design Contest

West Point, our nation's first engineering school, is sponsoring its 9th Annual Bridge Design Contest. Students aged 13 though 12th grade can participate, with a chance to win a $5000 scholarship or a laptop computer.

Contestants (individuals or teams of 2) will download free, easy-to-use software to design a bridge--further details are available at The contest ends in March, so have your students start now!

"West Point provides this contest as a service to education--and as a tribute to the Academy's two centuries of service to the United States of America."
