“The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) and the Associated Schools of Construction (ASC) have joined forces to form the Annual ASC-AGC National Student Competition (NSC). The competition is held every spring with competing teams from seven regions comprised of 6 students and 1 coach each. Students from across the country first participate in their Regional Competition. Those that win their division at the region qualify for the National Competition.”

usctrojans.jpgThe Student AGC Chapter at USC keeps up a website that includes an activity schedule, information on the ASC Reno Competition, a list of the members, and several other bits of information on the happenings of the group. Check it out if you are interested in the the construction students coming out of USC.

ISUI realize I need to be careful with excessive postings regarding my undergraduate school; but, I had to share this article which announces that, “For the second consecutive year, and sixth time overall, Iowa State’s student chapter of the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America has won first place in the annual Outstanding AGC Student Chapter Contest. The award, based on the quality and number of activities in which student chapters take part, places a particular emphasis on outreach activities to communities and schools. ”

Take a look at the article for specifics on the community services activities sponsored by the ISU Student AGC Chapter. These activities included Habitat for Humanity construction projects, a blood drive, a food drive, attending high school career fairs, and the most interesting one from my point of view – “a spring break trip to help struggling hurricane victims in southern Mississippi rebuild their homes”.

 Nice work Cyclones.
