Leonhard Center Inaugural Speaking Contest

Before almost 200 spectators crowded into the Hosler auditorium, eight engineering undergraduates delivered outstanding presentations in the inaugural Leonhard Center Speaking Contest.

Leonhard Center Speaking Contest
for Undergraduate Engineers

To raise the level of presentations given by engineering undergraduates, the Leonhard Center for the Enhancement of Engineering Education has initiated a contest in which engineering students from Penn State's College of Engineering vie to give the best 10-minute presentation that presents an engineering solution to a societal problem.

The contest draws from the hundreds of Penn State engineering students who each semester
take a course on effective speaking. Managing the contest is the Penn State student organization Utree (Undergraduate Research and Teaching Experiences in Engineering).
