Engineering Excellence Awards
ACEC of Kansas is currently accepting applications for the 2020 Engineering Excellence Awards Competition! The statewide awards program recognizes innovative and outstanding examples of engineering.
ACEC of Kansas uses the same Call for Entries brochure as ACEC national. In order to apply for an award at national, your award must win at the state level first and be recommended for national entry. Using the same brochure makes it easier after the Kansas Awards are judged, for winning projects to submit their entry to the national awards program.
Please note that while ACEC national has gone electronic with its submissions, ACEC of Kansas requires a hardcopy form and supporting materials to be submitted to our office by the deadline date listed below. The electronic project submission form link will not be used in the Kansas awards program.
There are twelve project categories:
Please reference the Engineering Excellence Awards Checklist before submitting your project.
The Kansas competition guidelines are the same as the national competition guidelines, except for the following:
Your Kansas project entry must be delivered to the ACEC of Kansas office no later than November 26, 2019. This allows time for the projects to be judged locally and for winning firms to submit an entry to ACEC by the national deadline of January 3, 2020.
Winning state entries will be awarded a plaque that will be mailed to the Firm Representative contact. There will be no formal presentation of awards - ACEC of Kansas strongly encourages member firms to take the initiative to make personal contact with the project client to celebrate the win.
The state entry fee is $130 ($230 for non-members). Please make your check payable to ACEC of Kansas. If your entry is a state winner and you wish to continue on to the national competition, we will advise on how to submit the national entry fee ($1,200 for ACEC members and $3,600 for non-members).
