"Celebrate Awesome" With Knovel's National Engineers Week Photo Contest 
Knovel to Highlight "Awesome" Engineering Inspirations Daily Starting
on February 18 
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/11/13 --  Knovel, a leader in
providing a Web-based application that integrates technical
information with analytical and search tools, will join National
Engineers Week's "Celebrate Awesome" activities by hosting a photo
contest from February 11th through March 1st and by highlighting one
"Awesome Engineering Inspiration" each day during Engineers Week. 
Engineers, engineering students and fans of engineers are encouraged
to submit images of the projects, people, role models and everyday
innovations that have inspired them to achieve "awesome."
Participants may submit photos via the Knovel contest site. The 10
participants who receive the most votes will be eligible for prizes,
and a panel of Knovel judges -- who are inspired engineers themselves
-- will then select two overall winners based on the photo's 1)
creativity and 2) relevance to the STEM community. 
There will be two grand prize winners; each will receive one Apple
iPad Mini. For more information and contest rules, visit the contest
site. 
In addition to the contest, other inspirational engineering
innovations will be featured on Knovel's blog daily, from February
18th through the 22nd. Expect to see "awesome" engineering creations,
from self-healing concrete to exoskeletons. Visit Knovel's blog at

"Everybody loves to hear about the big innovations that engineers
create, but it's just as important to recognize the ideas that ignite
both the creative and scientific processes that lead to engineering
innovation," said Knovel CEO Chris Forbes. "This year Knovel is
celebrating National Engineers Week by recognizing the many ideas
that inspire engineers to greatness. We can't wait to see what
participants will share."   
Knovel recently wrapped up its annual University Challenge, a program
that introduces future engineers to top-notch resources as they learn
how to research, problem solve and prepare for a competitive
workforce. The photo contest is another example of how Knovel helps
engineers to find inspiration. For more information about the 2012
