Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth was the Grand Prize Winner in a video contest sponsored by the National Engineers Week Foundation and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). Students were invited to make a two-minute video that shows why their engineering school is the best at making a difference through volunteer projects.

The top three of 12 entries were chosen by ASCE EWeek planning staff. Then, 7th and 8th grade students—who were finalists at the National Engineers' Week Future City Competition—voted for their favorite out of the top three entries.

During National Engineers Week, engineers around the country celebrate volunteerism and recognize the ways engineers are making a difference in their communities. For more information, visit
