Engineering Achievement Awards

Civil engineering achievements for projects located within the geographical area of the Wisconsin Section are recognized annually by awarding the “Engineering Achievement Awards.” The awards are given for the achievement, not to an individual, so that the many engineers who have worked on the particular projects are recognized as having contributed. The basis for the awards within each category is “an engineering project that demonstrates excellence in engineering skills and represents a significant contribution to engineering progress and society.”

The awards are made annually for engineering projects that fall into the general category of civil engineering. Only engineering and construction achievements within the geographic confines of the Wisconsin Section are eligible.

Nomination submissions should be submitted in PDF format via email to wi.sec.asce@gmail.com no later than June 1, 2018.
