The closing ceremony for the IEEE Global Humanitarian Technology Conference was a truly inspiring one, the keynote speakers implored attendees to make a positive difference for the sake of humanity in their home, country and community. It was at this session the winners of the Research Poster and Paper Competitions were announced. For me the nerves had subsided but anxiety took over, one can’t help but wonder what the results would look like after over a year of research and development. I had some great reviews from attendees about my project and their votes were a critical part if I should be successful. The Power Point session was great too, since I truly love the rush prior to entertaining an audience and feeling during a formal presentation. But what I didn’t know was the feedback where the written project document is concerned. Basically each competitor had to do a written paper on their project which I had to submit prior to completing my project in order to meet the deadline from this application the top 5 was selected but the exact result would impact the overall winner of the competition.
