2022 Regional Competition Announcement

Are you planning to participate in a 2022 Regional Competition? Your team will need to let us know by completing ASCE's Student Chapter SSBC Participation Form by October 30th. The link will be provided in Mailer #1 from your ASCE Student Symposium host. Information submitted in that form will be used to distribute your team participation stipend and other sponsor benefits.

Special Note:

We understand that there have been delays with the distribution of mailers in some regions. Don't worry -- this will not prevent you from receiving the team participation stipend! Please just complete the form as soon as you can. If you have questions, please contact us.
