ORLANDO, Fla. – December 15, 2014 - API Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:ATNY), a leading provider of high performance RF/microwave, power, and security solutions, is now a wireless vertical market partner of the Advantage Business Media (ABM) ”Young Mind Awards.“ This unique engineering competition challenges middle school, high school, and undergraduate students to design, build, and present an innovative solution that solves a problem utilizing a wireless technology.

Applicants are asked to identify and describe a problem or process in need of improvement, build the product solution, and then demonstrate how it has helped resolve the problem or improve the process.

Students are required to submit their designs and a short video demonstrating their finished product. A panel of judges, comprised of industry-recognized professionals, will review the submissions based on four principles: creativity, comprehensiveness, clarity of expression, and demonstration.

Tara Condon, vice president of corporate development and marketing for API Technologies, said, “Fostering science, technology, engineering, and math talent is vital. API Technologies is proud to support a program that celebrates engineering innovation among students and increases their interest in pursuing a career in the field.”

Competition entries are now being accepted at http://youngmindawards.com. All video presentations and submissions are due by May 31, 2015. Winners will be announced at the R&D 100 Awards in Las Vegas on November 13, 2015. A $1,000 prize will be presented to the winning wireless entry and the associated teacher and school.
