FINALISTS Announced for the 2022 CIRT National Design + Construction Competition

Wed, April 06, 2022 4:59 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Bucking the odds and another year of COVID19 induced challenges, disruptions, and school shutdowns, three entries for the 2022 CIRT National Design & Construction Competition have been announced. In its sixteenth year as a collaborative program with ACE Mentor Program of America, the competition attracted 28 entries from 15 Affiliates/Chapters. Again, this year three options or challenges were presented to the competing teams to consider: (1) Memorial for the Future; (2) Strong & Sustainable (use of concrete/cement); and (3) Urban Renewal.

The difficult process to narrow the submissions to just three, called upon the preliminary judges to both consider the entries on their own AND also in comparison with the other submissions in each category. After being compared side-by-side, only three garnered the coveted right to go onto the final presentation stage to vie for the top prize of $5,000; are as follows:

Worthy National Finalists

  • ACE Mentor Program of Southern Nevada/Las Vegas, Maverick Design Team for their Memorial of the Future entry
  • ACE Mentor Program of Northeast Florida, Creekside Senior National Team for their Strong + Sustainable entry
  • ACE Mentor Program of Houston, Violet Visionaries Team for their Urban Renewal entry

Six other teams were recognized as either First Runner-Up ($1,000 prize) or Second Runner-Up ($500 prize) in each of the three different design challenges or options:
First Runners-Up ($1,000 prize)

  • ACE Mentor Program of Milwaukee for their Memorial of the Future entry
  • ACE Mentor Program of Southern Nevada (Team 2) for their Strong + Sustainable entry
  • ACE Mentor Program of Polk County for their Urban Renewal entry

Second Runners-Up ($500 prize) 

  • ACE Mentor Program of San Diego for their Memorial of the Future entry
  • ACE Mentor Program of Southern Nevada (Team Next Gen) for their Strong + Sustainable entry
  • ACE Mentor Program of West Michigan, Grand Rapids for their Urban Renewal entry

CIRT is looking forward to a spirited and exciting NATIONAL PRESENTATION ROUND (among the three “Worthy Finalist” teams) during the CIRT Spring Conference at the Hyatt Regency, Tysons Corner, VA, on April 25, 2022. [NOTE: The presentation round will be streamed LIVE for viewing by interested parties, more details will be coming on this opportunity].
