Lean Student Paper Contest – Win $$$

By Jamie Flinchbaugh

OK, maybe not $$$, but you can win $500. As some of you may know, I am passionate about education. Here’s a post I did on lean in education, but most of my dollars and energy goes into the subject, including chair the board of the Pawley Institute at Oakland University.

The Lean Aerospace Initiative at MIT (an alma mater of mine) has a Student Publication Prize. Here are the details on the prize. It can be a published or unpublished paper, from between 2004 and 2006, and less than 9000 words. The panel will select a winning paper based on relevance to lean, creativity and innovation, and quality of work. The papers are due by the end of February and a winner will be announced by the end of March and will be presented at the LAI conference in Maryland in April.

So, if you are a student or happen to know one, please submit something. I’ve seen some great student work on lean over the years. Happy Writing!
