Young engineers, designers and research- ers from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico re- ceived $9,500 in prizes recently at Windows on the World in New York. The formal din- ner concluded the first biennial Henry R.
Worthington North American Technical
Awards Contest, sponsored by the Poly- technic Institute of New York. Guest speaker was Donald H. Rumsfeld, former Secretary of Defense.
First prize of $5,000 was awarded to Dr.
R.L. Evans, British Columbia Energy Com- mission, Vancouver, B.C. Second prize of $2,000 was awarded to co-authors John F.

More than 90 entries covering pump tech- nology were evaluated by judges from three countries, for prizes of $5,000, $2,000 and $1,000, and three honorable mention awards of $500.
The awards commemorate Henry Rossiter
Worthington, American inventor-engineer, who began his pump manufacturing firm in
Brooklyn, N.Y., in 1840. He was also a founder of Polytechnic Institute.
The purpose of the awards contest is to encourage young engineers and technical experts to contribute to improvements in pump design, performance, operation and maintenance. Worthington will publish the winning papers in book form.
The awards were presented by Lee J. Topp, president of Worthington Pump Inc., before an audience of 150 educators, scientists, en- gineers, industrialists, public officials and editors. The contest is modeled on the bi- ennial Worthington European Technical
Award, begun in Italy in 1967.
