Let me help you with the topics :

[Note: While these are just ideas to get you started; you are free to interpret the topics in your own way and write.]

1. Engineers against terrorism.

One of the biggest hurdles in making the world a better place to live - Terrorism. How can engineers work together against terrorism? Think how can technology be developed for enhancing security. How can engineers team up against terrorism?

2. Future of transportation.

How would you like to have the transportation in 2030/2050? What are the challenges faced by current systems? How can engineers tackle those challenges? Think think!

3. The problem(s) I'd love to solve (as an engineer).

What are the problems that you see around you and how'd you go about fixing them? The problems could be technical or non-technical. All you need is an engineers' approach towards the problem. Think and write about it!

I hope this brief helps you get started. Post your thoughts and comments in this thread. πŸ˜€

I hope this doesn't go the CE innovator contest way
I have some queries about the contest.

1. As CE has international audience I think the problem of plagiarism/unintentional plagiarism should be taken account.
So have any arrangement like article checker or kind of been made?
2. If a person can write in more than one category?

Its easy to identify copied article. Moreover, we have international audience so anyone can identify copied stuff.

Sure! Read this -

The idea is nice. The prize is cool. So what are you all waiting for?
$$$

*wide grin*

Id sure love to do this, but I'm pretty sure I will procrastinate like last time πŸ˜” Maybe someone can write an engineer's solution to that? πŸ˜‰

Yep. Say following words to yourself every-time you need a motivation.

"Screw It! Let's Do It!"
"Easier said than done"

Yeah. I think. Its damn difficult to get the sponsors these days.
Yep, looks like the recession hit the creativity of engineers too!

This contest reminds me of my school days when our English teacher used to give us 3-5 topics for writing an essay in English exam paper ;-).I think if instead of making it a contest, it would have been a normal thread , lot of ideas from CEans must have come.

Anyways ,Please wait for my entries(atleast 1 for sure). Last date is too far.

Other CEans, get ready to compete with me πŸ˜€ or am i going to be the only participant and only winner of all t-shirts? Common guys send your entries.
