Engineering Excellence is an annual design competition that recognizes engineering achievements that demonstrate the highest degree of merit and ingenuity. For more than thirty years, ACEC Washington member firms have competed in the state competition and the finalists have gone on to compete against the finest examples of engineering excellence in the world. Engineering Excellence 2020 offers all competition entrants an opportunity to be recognized regardless of the size of the firm or the size of the project. ACEC Washington’s highly successful “Best in State” local-only competition track will once again parallel the traditional ACEC Engineering Excellence Program, or National Track. The Local Track competition is less costly and less time consuming to enter, with the panel and notebook requirements significantly reduced. A description of the submittal requirements for both programs is contained in the link below.
