What’s Mind the Gap (MtG) Contest?
Mind the Gap is a contest challenging IEEE students in Region 8 to come up with a project proposal that helps reduce the gap between generations and bring them together, using technology.
How should students apply?
A team of up to 5 students will send a proposal describing a project idea

The team should be able to transform their project idea into a proof of concept, within 6 months
What about the winners?
Three winning proposals will be selected

The winning teams will have a chance to transform their project into a reality, with a funding of up to $10,000
What is the Generation Gap?
The term “generation gap” describes the sociological and psychological differences between people belonging to different generations.
Sociologists differentiate between three generations: Baby Boomers (born between 1946 and 1964), Generation X (1965-1984), and Millennials (also known as Generation Y, 1985-2010).
The biggest gap exists between Millennials and their predecessors.
Ieee Region 8
Mind the gap contest!

Millennials grew up in a time where everything they needed to know or wanted to know was at their fingertips thanks to the advancement of technology.
In comparison, Millenials lack what their predecessors abundantly have: experience.
