Congratulations to the SWE members who participated in a wonderful rendition of the Glamorous ENGINEERs from Region G! Some photos can be found on Facebook. Special acknowledgments go to Penn State – lyrics, University of Kentucky – awesome dance moves, University of Akron – props and costumes, and to all who participated.

It was great fun and I hear we are already excited about and planning for next year’s Celebrate SWE!

Please take a look at the winners and I suggest researching the websites of the sections and regions who did receive awards and get ideas on how to improve our Region G sections, so that we can win more awards!  Also, note that the majority of the awards are for collegiate sections, so we need to encourage and help our collegiate sections to apply.  Pay attention to those awards where an award was not given to all three – large, medium, small sections – this means that not enough applications were received.  I encourage you to keep up the good work in Region G and plan to apply next year.
