Awards and Competitions
AISC awards and competitions honor significant projects and individuals who have made a difference in the success of the fabricated structural steel industry. Whether it's for innovative design, an insightful technical paper, or a lifetime of outstanding service, an AISC award bestows prestige and well-deserved recognition upon its recipient.

Each year, AISC's T.R. Higgins Lectureship Award recognizes an outstanding lecturer and author whose technical paper or papers, published during the eligibility period, are considered an outstanding contribution to the engineering literature on fabricated structural steel.
Each year, Reidar Bjorhovde Outstanding Young Professional Award opens doors for a particularly promising young professional. AISC will help them develop a network of connections to kick-start their careers, set them up with mill and fabrication shop tours so they can get a deep understanding of what the structural steel industry really has to offer, and provide a travel grant for them to attend NASCC: The Steel Conference for in-person networking.
One way to keep safety on every person's mind is to recognize achievements and announce them to employees, customers and the community we work in. The AISC Safety Award Program is a way to recognize and announce those achievements. Winning an award provides a way to remind employees that safety is important to the company and is important to them.
Awarded on an as-needed basis, the Board of Directors Award honors those who have provided, over a sustained period of time, significant and outstanding service on the AISC Board of Directors and have contributed to the success of AISC and the structural steel industry.
