Submission form coming in early 2022!

All teams that compete at a Regional Competition are eligible for this award; participation is not mandatory and will have no effect on scoring and other facets of the competition. Entries for the 2022 competition must be received before 5:00 PM Eastern Daylight-Saving Time, April 4, 2022 to be considered. The winner will be selected by the Rules Committee and announced by April 29. The winning team will receive an invitation to the National Finals.

The SSBC Team Engagement Award is presented to a team that demonstrates an outstanding commitment to building a diverse team, creating an inclusive environment, and appreciating the value of remarkable individuals working together to succeed. The basis for this competition is a one- to two-page written narrative that details how the team benefited from its efforts toward equity and diversity during recruiting, training, and while working together to design and create the best bridge they can.

Robert E. Shaw, Jr. Spirit of the Competition Award

The award is named for Robert E. Shaw, Jr. who founded the Student Steel Bridge Competition in the spring of 1987 as a means of challenging university and college students to use their engineering skills to design, fabricate, construct and test a scaled-version of a ​steel​ ​bridge​ in a friendly competition.

These backgrounds and experiences also may be very diverse. Your team will embrace the participation of all students regardless of race; color; religion or faith; sex; or the many other characteristics listed in the Competition Rules. Beyond that, some of your teammates may be just starting their undergraduate careers, while others may be on the cusp of entering professional practice with an advanced degree. Some may study topics outside engineering. Perhaps some demonstrate a remarkable commitment to the team by participating while working full-time. Still, others may juggle family life and build practice sessions, or be dedicated to following their own non-traditional educational path.

SSBC Team Engagement Award

This award recognizes teams that foster equity, diversity, and inclusion. It celebrates formidable teams of smart people who draw from a broad array of backgrounds and experiences.

The Frank J. Hatfield Ingenuity Award is presented to a ​team​ that shows the most engineering ingenuity in the design and/or construction of their ​bridge​ based on the requirements of the competition rules.

Judges at the regional competition gave the UTEP bridge and its team top marks in four of six categories – economy, efficiency, speed and stiffness – as well as a second place in weight. The team competed against nine universities in the Texas-Mexico region and now has moved on to the national competition. This is the second year in a row that UTEP’s team has competed at the national level.

The University of Texas at El Paso College of Engineering steel bridge team will compete at the 2012 National Student Steel Bridge Competition May 24-27 at Clemson University in Clemson, S.C.

Student engineers from UTEP decisively earned their second straight first place finish at the regional AISC-ASCE Steel Bridge Competition in January.

The 26 team members, who include 14 students from last year’s team, range from freshmen to a doctoral student.

She tells time to go easy on me
She calls me back, she’s always waiting
Across that bridge her magic still resides

Captured by the neon sign, no vacancy, except for me
She has a way of making me feel like she needs it
Before I arrived I was lost to the daylight, so harsh and bright
But in the peace of the darkness, the world is good to me. I look out and see
She’s walking in air over the black glass

You see, goodness comes from all the seeds we’ve planted
And goodness comes from all the songs we play
Goodness seeps through all of her foundations
When she’s in my life, I, I can’t lose my way.

Lyrics

Goodness comes from all the seeds we’ve planted
And goodness comes from all the songs we play
Goodness seeps through all of her foundations
When she’s in my life, I can’t lose my way

A spin of the bottle is how she appeared to me with such clarity
Wizards, witches, and fairy dust, things that were strange to me are my new reality
When I look at her, I see eternity, that’s how she sings to me
Walking in air over the black glass

Goodness comes from all the seeds we’ve planted
And goodness comes from all the songs we play
Goodness seeps through all of her foundations
When she’s in my life, I, I can’t lose my way, no
When she’s in my life, I, I can’t lose my way
