Getting recognized for all your personal and your team’s efforts as IEEE volunteers is a great reward for all the energy and enthusiasm you put into your student branch day after day. We received many excellent submissions for this year’s region 8 awards. We have been quite busy evaluating them all and the decision in some categories was not easy at all. Congratulations to all the winners!
The results will also be published in the September issue of Region 8 News.
