Student Design Competition Call for Entries

Attention college and university faculty: It’s time to register your students for the 17th annual ACSA/AISC Steel Design Student Competition. Individual students or teams participating in this year’s competition are required to have a faculty sponsor, who must fill out the registration form by March 29; registration information may be modified until submission of the final project (due by May 24). A total of $14,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to the winning students and their faculty sponsors, and there is no fee to enter the competition.

The program encourages architecture students from across North America to explore the use of steel in structural design. Students have the opportunity to participate in one of two categories: a museum category that challenges students to design a museum featuring exhibit areas for large scale exhibits, as well as permanent collections and changing or rotating exhibitions; and an open design category.
