SWE sections/affiliates/MALs and SWENext Clubs are encouraged to “opt-in” to this challenge and recruit the newest SWENexters from all backgrounds! Recruitment efforts are encouraged to focus on including all aspects of STEAM, recruiting younger students (middle school and starting high school), and recruiting students from all backgrounds. The top 3 winners for each tier will win a monetary prize to fund future outreach events. The Challenge will run from February 1, 2022 through May 31, 2022.
The SWENext Programs Committee runs the SWENext Program, a way for pre-college students to become a part of SWE. The committee provides relevant content and programming to encourage STEM identity and help students navigate the path to college. Only 13% of engineers are women, therefore we see increasing female participation in engineering as a critical need. The cost to join SWENext is free! Learn more at swenext.swe.org.
The SWENext student Programs Committee needs your help to reach our goal of increasing membership to 6250 SWENexters by the end of the fiscal year (we are currently at 5072 SWENexters).
How Can You Help?
Participate in the FY22 SWENext Recruitment Challenge! You must opt-in to participate by registering your section/affiliate/MAL or SWENext Club at this link.
During registration, you will create a unique “Event Code.” This code will be the way we track which section/affiliate/MAL or SWENext club recruit which SWENexter. Whenever you sign a student up for SWENext, have them use your unique “Event Code.” (See the attached FAQs for information on how to create a unique Event Code.)
