Ohio Council accepting Ohio Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement Project applications

The Ohio Council of ASCE is soliciting nominations for the 2016 Ohio Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement Award. Nominations must be received by the Ohio OCEA Committee Chair no later than 5:00 PM, Monday, March 7, 2016. If you are unable to meet this deadline, please contact Al Esser at 440-256-6500 or email him at

Selection criteria for the Ohio OCEA Award parallels national ASCE's criteria except that nominated projects must be located within Ohio's borders. Projects nominated for but not winning the national ASCE OCEA competition are eligible. Ohio Council’s OCEA winner will be selected by a committee of judges representing each Ohio Section.

Selection is based on how the project demonstrates the application of civil engineering skills and its contribution to civil engineering progress and mankind. Judges will consider the following criteria: (1) contribution to the well-being of people and communities, (2) resourcefulness in planning and in the solution of design problems, (3) pioneering use of materials and methods, (4) innovations in construction, and (5) impact on the physical environment, unusual aspects, and esthetic values.
