ACI co-sponsors concrete canoe competition

The American Concrete Institute announced its continued co-sponsorship of the annual National Concrete Canoe Competition.

The event, sponsored by the American Society of Civil Engineers and hosted by École de Technologie Supérieure, was held June 19-21 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

More than 200 university teams competed in 18 conference contests last spring to qualify for participation at the national level. Winners at each conference level were invited to participate in the 21st Annual NCCC in June.

Academic scholarships totaling $9,000 were awarded to the winning teams’ undergraduate civil engineering programs. In addition, ACI presented the “American Concrete Institute Award for Excellence in Concrete Canoe Design” to the team that best recognized the use of basic design principles for unconventional applications.
