The American National Standards Institute (ANSI), coordinator of the U.S. voluntary standardization system, and its Committee on Education (CoE) hosts a paper competition every year.  The purpose of this competition is part of an ANSI-led effort to raise awareness about the strategic importance of standards and conformance among U.S. undergraduate and graduate students.

The ANSI Committee on Education is in the process of judging the 2018 papers but it is not soon for students and faculty to begin drafting 2019 entries.   Copies of winning papers are linked below.

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI), coordinator of the U.S. voluntary standardization system, and its Committee on Education (CoE) hosts a paper competition every year.  The purpose of this competition is part of an ANSI-led effort to raise awareness about the strategic importance of standards and conformance among U.S. undergraduate and graduate students.

The 2017 winners are:

Tiana Ashley Khong of San Jose State University of California is the first-place winner with a paper titled, “The World of 2050: Safety by Design”  which introduces readers to a futuristic world in which international governments and technology companies have created safety-by-design service standards with the motto “safety before innovation.” The paper emphasizes how the rise of Internet of Things (IoT) will lead to innovative intelligent buildings, autonomous vehicles, and smart roads—and these systems will increasingly rely on service safety standards to ensure optimal security for consumers and the public.

Qahtan Al Jammali of the City University of New York is the second-place winner with a paper titled,  “Cyborg Gen2330”  which is a letter written by a hybrid human machine, and highlights standards’ critical role in the compatibility and safety and well-being of all biological and mechanical constituents of the universe.

There was a cash prize and travel funding to attend World Standards Week earlier this month.
