Milton F. Lunch Ethics Contest

All current NSPE individual members through their NSPE state societies and NSPE chapters (including student chapters) were invited to participate in the 2017 NSPE Milton F. Lunch Ethics Contest which provided an opportunity to match their wits with experienced professional engineers and engineering students throughout the country!

New this year, the winning entry received a certificate, recognition in PE magazine, and an award of $1,000 to the author!

What Was To Be Done?

NSPE’s Board of Ethical Review furnished four different fact situations to choose from regarding the ethics of engineers. Contestants choose any one out of the four situations and developed an essay, video, photo essay, poster, or PowerPoint presentation which could include embedded videos/sound, etc. to demonstrate their understanding of the facts and the NSPE Code of Ethics.
