Student Design Competition Registration Deadline Approaching

Attention college and university faculty: The deadline to register your students for the 17th annual ACSA/AISC Steel Design Student Competition is fast approaching!

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. Category I is titled "Museum" and allows students to explore the many varied functional and aesthetic uses for steel as a building material. As usual, Category II is an open category that offers architecture students the opportunity to select a site and building program using steel as the primary material.
