CSA Group Academic Challenge

Engaging students in the world of standards

Academic Challenge Overview

Every year, students participate in the CSA Group Academic Challenge by sharing forward-looking ideas and competitive proposals about industry practices and issues that are influenced by standards.

The Academic Challenge connects future leaders across multiple areas of study with the world of standards to help them discover their impact on everyday life. Students also learn how engaging in the standards development process can positively affect their careers and bring new perspectives to the established standards development community.

Challenge finalists, as selected by a panel of judges, are fully sponsored to attend the CSA Group Annual Conference and present their project to our members and conference participants who will vote on the winning presentation.

Challenge Submission Deadline – May 1, 2019
