 organizations; editors of the industry's leading professional journals; and
 faculty from prestigious engineering universities.  This distinguished panel
 will judge potential award-winning products on the following criteria:
 innovation, uniqueness, market impact, customer benefit, and value to society.

 companies that not only strive for and achieve excellence, but also whose
 vision results in a positive impact on the growth and advancement of the
