MIAMI - The 2008 World Standards Day Paper Competition has been announced by the U.S. Celebration of World Standards Day Planning Committee and the paper competition’s sponsor, the Standards Engineering Society (SES).

The theme for this year’s paper competition, “Intelligent and Sustainable Buildings,” recognizes the critical role of standards and conformity assessment programs in ensuring safety requirements; facilitating coordination among contractors, builders, engineers, and architects; and incorporating new technologies in design and construction.

From increased energy efficiency to integration with the latest information and communication technologies, the world’s attention is focused on commercial, government, and residential buildings that are accessible, safe, and sustainable. The 2008 World Standards Day Paper Competition invites papers that use specific examples to show ways that standards and conformity assessment programs are used for intelligent and sustainable buildings.

Paper competition winners will be announced and given their awards during a banquet at the celebration, which will be held this year on Oct. 23 in Washington, D.C.

Cash prizes are awarded for the best three papers submitted. The first place winner will receive a plaque and $2,500. Second and third place winners will receive $1,000 and $500, respectively, along with a certificate.

All paper contest submissions must be received with an official entry form by midnight on Aug. 29, 2008, by the SES executive director.
