ANSI Announces 2013 Student Paper Competition

NEW YORK, Jan. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As part of its continuing efforts to raise awareness of the strategic significance of standards and conformance among postsecondary students, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), in conjunction with its Committee on Education (CoE), is pleased to announce its second annual student paper competition. Entries in the competition are due by 5 p.m. EST on Monday, April 15 , 2013, and must be written and submitted by an enrolled college or university student(s) at the associate, undergraduate, or graduate level in a U.S. academic institute of higher learning. It is open to students of all disciplines.

The theme of the 2013 ANSI Student Paper Competition is Standards and Emerging Technology Decisions – What Role Do Standards Play in Disaster Recovery and Business Recovery?  As we all know, in 2012 the Northeast experienced the devastation of Hurricane Sandy and Standards played a critical role across various industries, especially in regards to public safety and welfare. With a destructive Hurricane such as this, Standards were important across various areas including health, medical, water and food safety, environment and climate, power  (Smart Grid) and utilities, evacuation and emergency response, transportation, communications (e.g., cell towers), financial (e.g., national mortgage standards), fuel delivery, business continuity, product safety, energy efficiency, waste treatment, building (for disasters such as hurricane) and others.

Submitted papers should examine the role standards play in disaster recovery and business continuity, providing specific examples of where, how and which standards were or could have been invoked in an emergency situation; papers may also identify areas where existing standards could be improved and new standards could be developed and introduced for emergency management.

Entries must not exceed 2,000 words and must be formatted in accordance with the submission criteria in the paper competition flyer linked below. Submissions will be screened by members of the ANSI CoE to ensure they meet specified criteria and finalists will be recommended to ANSI for consideration. ANSI reserves the right to award no prizes based on the determination of the judges.
