POWE Swag Design Competition!
POWE is ready to get some swag!! We're thinking hoodies, sweatpants, iphone cases, tattoos, sunglasses or toques/hats.We will be holding a competition for the swag logos as well as logos for conference shirts. These will be two separate competitions and there will be a separate prize for each one.
- The POWE Logo needs to say the word "POWE". That's it!
- The conference T-shirt needs to say "Conference for Future Women Women in Engineering 2014". The design should also be white because it will be put onto different color T-shirts.
- For the Swag, the winner will get a t-shirt or sticker or whatever we decide to put the logo on + the choice between a FrostBite or CopyEUS gift card!
-For the conference design the winner will get a conference t-shirt + lunch at conference (Feb. 21) + the choice between a FrostBite or CopyEUS gift card!

Looking for Conference Subcommittee Members
We are looking for POWE members to form a subcommittee for conference. Conference will be held on Febuary 21 and is a day where prospective female engineering students from schools in/near Montreal visit McGill to learn more about the campus and the Engineering program. This exciting event takes place every year, pictures from last year’s event can be found on the facebook page. The event usually attracts a big crowd, so we need lots of volunteers to help out with everything from ordering food to giving lab tours to organizing a design competition. This is also a great opportunity to get more involved in POWE and get to know your fellow POWE members. To sign up as a volunteer please put your name and email on this list
