Gunlogson Environmental Design Student Competition

Ages:Undergraduate

Types:Submission, Presentation

Categories:Design, engineering, Environment, STEM

Scope:National

This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

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.

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.

Phase I: Each written submission will be judged by at least three judges in accordance with the Student Design Competition score sheet. Judges shall then forward scores to the Awards Coordinator for selection of top three teams, based on the scores submitted by the judges. If the number of submissions exceeds that which is reasonable for one person to judge, a tiered approach to selection will be adopted (e.g., submissions will be divided into two groups and top 5 submissions from each group will be judged by a third set of judges). A standard normalization procedure will be used, ensuring no one judge will have an undue and unfair influence on the results.

Phase II: The top three teams 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. Scores are distributed as shown on attached scoring sheet. Decision of the judges is final.

This competition has not yet listed it's awards.
