Engineering Excellence Awards

About the Engineering Excellence Awards Competition

The Engineering Excellence Awards Competition is an annual program that brings well-deserved public recognition to Ohio's engineering industry by spotlighting engineering projects that demonstrate a high degree of uniqueness, ingenuity, and value.

Companies are invited to enter their best projects, either construction designs or engineering reports and studies, in the state competition.

Entries are evaluated by a panel of judges who rate each entry on the basis of its uniqueness and originality; technical value to the engineering profession; social and economic considerations; complexity; and how successfully the project met the needs, including time and budget constraints, of the client.

The highest-rated project is recognized with the ACEC Ohio Grand Award. Other entries are recognized with Outstanding Achievement Awards and Honor Awards.

The awards will be presented at the annual EEA Awards Luncheon in Columbus.

At least 10 of the top-scoring entries in ACEC Ohio's annual competition are eligible for entry in the national competition, which culminates with a gala reception and awards banquet in Washington, DC.
