ASCE OC Branch 2013-2014 Awards Call for Nominations

The Orange County Branch of the American Society of Civil Engineers is now accepting nominations. The due date is Monday, December 29, 2014. Please consider nominating a candidate or a project as soon as possible. Your project must be located in, or partially within, Orange County. However, if your project is not located within Orange County consider nominating the project manager or project engineer for an individual award. The individuals nominated need to live or work within Orange County.  Individual awards wil be conferred in the following categories:

Individual Awards

Project awards are conferred in the categories below.  Often there are categories that don't recieve nominations. Please select all categories you believe apply to the project. Also don't focus too much on the size of the project. In some cases the categories are by nature small projects. Please use the "other" category if your project still doesn't fit into one of the categories.
