Voice of the Next Generation Student Essay Contest

FedEx is interested in learning how Generation Y (Gen Y) views Access. To find out where Access will take us next, FedEx and Net Impact have launched an exciting new essay contest.

They challenge Gen Y undergraduate and graduate-level students to voice their ideas on where Access will take the world next and how it will impact business, technology, medicine, the environment, the economy and so forth in a 1000 - 1,500 word essay.

Matthew - I've added the link you provided directly into the post. Thank you! Do you think any of the Hartford chapter SITES students will enter this contest?

I am truly hoping that some of the students enter. I sent it out to them via email the other night so hopefully they decide to pursue it.
