National Engineers' Week

For its Fiftieth Anniversary Celebration, the National Engineers Week
Committee will again take its message that "Engineers Turn Ideas into
Reality" to the streets and the highways through its Outdoor Advertising
Campaign. The goal of the program, which will be led by student and
professional sections of engineering societies around the country, is to
place a public service announcement extolling engineers on a minimum of 100
billboards, and 1000 public transit buses, during the month of February.
Building on the increased success of the program over the past four years,
the campaign has a dual purpose: to increase grassroots involvement in
National Engineers Week, particularly among undergraduate engineering
students; and to make a broader audience aware of the week-long celebration
and the technological achievements it honors.
