2019 Steel Design Student Competition Program Now Accepting Entries

AISC and the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) are pleased to announce the 19th annual Steel Design Student Competition for the 2018-19 academic year. The competition encourages architecture students from across North America to explore the many functional and aesthetic uses for steel in design and construction. A total of $14,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to the winning students and their faculty sponsors.

The competition offers students the opportunity to compete in two separate categories. The intermodal transportation center category challenges students to design a facility that proposes a cohesive transit system including components such as international, regional and local train stations, bus terminals, ports, airports and spaceports in a major urban location. In the open category, students are given the flexibility to select a site and building program.

The competition is open to upper-level students (third year or above, including graduate students). All student entrants are required to work under the direction of a faculty sponsor. Registration is free and open to eligible entrants until April 3, 2019. For more information and to view this year’s winners, visit This year's winners will also be featured in our November issue.
