The EngineerGirl writing contest is, for the first time, asking students to submit works of creative fiction.
We want stories about women and girls saving the day with their wits, skill, and whatever resources they can find to solve the problem. Maybe they are working alone, maybe they are part of an elite team. Maybe they just find themselves in an unusual situation that requires some innovative thinking.
We want stories that inspire EngineerGirl readers to think, “I want to be able to do that” or “I can do that.”
To enter the contest:
Write an original, fictional story in which the main character is a female who uses engineering skills to solve a problem.
There are three basic rules:
Remember: Writers spend time doing research to ensure that story characters — their clothes, their tools, and especially their actions — are authentic. Take time to learn about engineers and engineering. The better you understand the engineering design process, the better and more believable your story will be. You are also encouraged to include with your submission information on one or more resources your readers can go to for more information.

Most of the time the Office 365 login will be first.last. However, there are certain instances where this is not the case. For example, if you have a more common name, such as Ann Jones, there may be more than one student in Cobb County with that name and then the login generated for you may be slightly different.
