Dear Team-Ada and Ada Announce:

The IEEE Computer Society is sponsoring an International Design
Competition. This year's competition is focused on embedded systems
whereby teams design and implement solutions to real world problems. As
such, those using Ada should fare well in the competition.

Teams are composed of 3-5 students and a professor mentor.

Please send out this message to your academic colleagues working in Ada.
There is $36,000 awarded to the top 5 teams with another $24,000 in a
