• Steel Bridge
This is a great opportunity to show our support for the Cal Poly students and be amazed by their accomplishments. This month some of our participating SCE student members will be sharing their experiences on the project teams.

Each year, the Los Angeles Section presents Project and Individual Awards at the Section’s Annual Awards Meeting. These Awards are selected from nominations made by the Branches, Younger Member Forums, Life Member Forums, Technical Groups, Committees, and individual members. All nominations for the Los Angeles Section Awards are coordinated with and processed through the local Branches in which the project is located, or the person is a member. Along with our local Branch Award Categories, the Section Award Categories have now been aligned with the Region 9 Award Categories. All Branch Award winners, Projects and Individuals, are forwarded to the Section Annual Awards Committee for consideration. From there, the award winners from the Section are then forwarded to the Region 9 Awards Committee for consideration of a Region 9 Award, to be presented the following calendar year.
The Los Angeles Section has worked to streamline the awards programs at both the section and the branch levels by implementing a web-based submittal process. Last year was the first year and proved to be a success, so this year the LA Section has continued to provide our branch with an awards “portal” which will act as our Branch Awards web page. A link has been added to the San Luis Obispo Branch’s web page that will take you to the new Branch Awards portal.
The nomination submittal deadline is Tuesday, May 31st, and the award winners will be announced at our June Branch Meeting.
If you have a deserving Project, or Individual, and would like to nominate them for an Award please click the link below. You will be taken to the web-based Awards Portal where you will be able to submit your project and individual Award Nominations.

Thank you, and good luck to all the award nominees. Please let me know if you have any questions with the submittal process.

We have the great honor of hearing from the following student teams at this month’s Branch meeting:
Have you ever seen concrete float? Have you ever witnessed the various Cal Poly Engineering Student competitions?
