2022 MBMA Student Design Competition Opens July 15th
Registration is free to full-time graduate and undergraduate students, but all entrants are required to have a faculty sponsor. "Our inaugural contest last year was a great success, with 64 incredible designs submitted for an elementary school concept," says W. Lee Shoemaker, Ph.D., PE, MBMA director of research and engineering and contest organizer. "We hope to encourage even more students to learn about metal buildings this year. Metal provides an endless array of possibilities, and we look forward to seeing what this year's entrants come up with."
A total of six prizes will be given—one overall winner, two graduate awards and three undergraduate awards. These prizes will be divided between the students and faculty sponsors. Teams may also enter, and prizes will be divided and distributed equally to each member of a registered team. Contest winners will be announced on Feb. 28, 2023.
Further details about design parameters, judging criteria and submission requirements are available at www.mbmaeducation.org. Also, questions can be addressed to Lee Shoemaker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
