The 2006 theme was announced by the U.S. World Standards Day Planning Committee and by the Standards Engineering Society (SES), the paper competition's sponsor.

Winners will be announced and given their awards at the U.S. celebration of World Standards Day on Oct. 11 in Washington.

Second and third place winners will receive $1,000 and $500, respectively, along with a certificate. In addition, the winning papers will be published in SES' journal, Standards Engineering, with the first place winner also appearing in a feature article in the ANSI Reporter, a publication of the American National Standards Institute.
