Universal Steel Wins Steel Sculpture Competition


The five finalists for AISC’s fifth annual Steel Sculpture Competition were on display at the recent NASCC: The Steel Conference in Orlando, where attendees voted for their favorite. (The only rules for the competition are that entrants must be AISC full or associate members and entries have to fit into a 2-ft by 2-ft by 2-ft box and be made entirely of steel.)

Nine sculptures were entered into the competition this year, and the winner is “Building America,” by Universal Steel Inc. (an AISC member/Certified fabricator). You can view all of the entries at

More information about the creation of the winning sculpture will be included in our June issue.
