Step 2. After the paper deadline has passed, each ENMA 480 professor will select the best 3 papers from their class.

Step 3. All of those best 3 papers from the classes will then be evaluated by a three-person panel.

Step 4. The panel will select the first, second, and third place papers.

Step 5. The student authors of those 3 papers will be invited to a luncheon to present their papers to a small group from the College of Engineering and the ODU Libraries.   During the luncheon, the winning student authors will receive their prizes.
