The Steel Joist Institute (SJI) is accepting entries for its annual design awards, with the winning companies awarded a $2000 scholarship to their chosen school for engineering or architectural students.

The awards will be presented in three categories:
? industrial (i.e. manufacturing facilities, distribution centers, and warehouses);
? non-industrial (i.e. office buildings, schools, and churches); and
? unique applications.

Nominations must be submitted by Friday, October 24, and projects must be located in the United States, Canada, or Mexico with steel joists (and/or associated girders) manufactured by an active SJI member. Eligible projects include new buildings and major retrofit or expansion projects constructed within the last three years.

Companies may submit more than one project, but each will be judged separately based on flexibility, speed of construction, value, and aesthetic considerations. Visit the SJI site for more information.
