It was for the thirteenth time that Mid Sweden University arranged an essay competition for pupils studying the second year on technical and science programs at Sundsvall Gymnasium, Västermalm. The purpose of the essay competition is to raise the interest of technology and research for young people. To support their writing, pupils have been offered lectures from Mid University researchers on 3D visualization, environment, cool lasers and how to search information and libraries.

- We have received many interesting essays this year where the students showed a visionary thinking and challenged our traditional norms. We hope this competition raises awareness of research and its importance to society, says Börje Norlin.

The theme of this year's competition was Smart Societies, and in the jury there are researchers STC and FSCN. The researchers Börje Norlin and Enkeleda Balliu were in place during Thursday's summer ending June 15th to award the winners. The five winning grants received scholarships totaling 11 000 SEK.
