Engineering Excellence Awards Call for Entries

Members of the Engineering Community,

Tell Your Project’s Story!

You may think of it as everyday engineering, but to your clients and the public; this is a unique project with a unique solution.

A compelling narrative helps the judges understand and visualize how you demonstrated Engineering Excellence.

Once a year, the American Council of Engineering Companies celebrates those projects exhibiting the best of the best – our member’s most innovative projects. The Engineering Excellence Awards recognize engineering firms for the projects that demonstrate a high degree of achievement. We encourage your firm to submit projects for consideration.

We celebrate the awards as a highlight of E-Week activities. The week kicks off with the Omaha World Herald Engineer’s Week Supplement coordinated by ACEC/N that will appear in the Sunday edition on February 21, 2016.

Award winners for 2016 will be recognized on February 24, 2016, during an awards gala. All entrants and firm principals will be formally invited and we encourage you to invite your clients to join you for this celebration of Engineering in Nebraska.

Please contact the ACEC/Nebraska office with any questions or for more information. I look forward to seeing many outstanding projects!

Have fun and good luck!

Jackie McCullough
Executive Director, ACEC Nebraska
