Categories:Design, engineering, Environment, STEM

Scope:National

America/New_York

The purpose of the competition is to encourage undergraduate students to participate in the design of a relevant engineering project and to provide an arena of professional competition for environmentally and biologically related design projects. This competition is complementary to the AGCO National Design Competition, which focuses on agricultural and food related projects, while Gunlogson focuses on environmentally and biologically related projects.

The competition consists of two parts: (1) Submission of a design report to be judged by an expert panel, and (2) Participation by the three teams earning the highest report scores in a presentation competition at the ASABE Annual International Meeting. Awards will be based on the overall score, which is a composite of project, written, and oral scores.

Competitors are required to submit a design report to be judged by an expert panel. After which, the three teams earning the highest report scores will be required to enter the presentation competition at the ASABE Annual International Meeting. 1. Paper content must involve the application of engineering design for an environmental or biological application. It is expected that designs will reflect a wide spectrum of approaches ranging from management practice development to equipment design to bioreactor or ecological system design. Regardless of the specific approach, engineering design is the process of devising a machine, component, system, or process to meet a desired need. It involves analysis, synthesis and decision-making processes (often iterative), in which the basic sciences, mathematics and engineering sciences, and technology are applied to convert resources optimally to meet a stated objective. Sociological, economic, safety, aesthetic, legal, ethical, etc. considerations can - and often must - be included as part of the design process. Papers can result from academic design projects performed by the student. 2. The presentation shall be an oral summary of the written paper entered. The degree of emphasis given segments of the general subject, however, need not be the same in the oral presentation as in the written paper.

A. Selection of winners will be completed in two phases. 1. Phase I: Each written submission will be judged by at least three judges in accordance with the score sheet defined in Article VI. 2. Phase II: The top three contestants will be invited to attend the ASABE International Meeting to participate in the oral presentation portion of the competition. Should any of the top three be unable to participate, the next ranking entries shall be invited. Judges will evaluate the oral presentations of participants and the overall impressions and quality of the project as presented per the scoresheet defined in Article VI. B. Decision of the judges is final.

Eligibility:
A. Contestants shall be student members of the ASABE (membership in a local student branch will not substitute for student membership in ASABE) and undergraduates at the time of the studies that resulted in the preparation of the paper. B. Entries shall be received at ASABE headquarters no later than six months after the students’ receipt of the first professional degree. C. Contestants can make only one entry per year. D. Contestants must have paid their dues to ASABE by the submission date or the entry will be disqualified. E. Projects may be conceived and executed by multiple contestants. All members of the design groups must be eligible as outlined above. F. A maximum of 3 teams are allowed from each department. If more than three entries are submitted from any department, design course advisors and/or department chairs will be consulted to select the accepted entries; if input is not received from advisors or department chairs by 3 days after the submittal deadline, the first three entries received will be accepted. G. Papers submitted to other ASABE Student Design Competitions are not eligible for the G.B. Gunlogson Environmental Open Format Award Competition
