“1 October Memorial” Takes Home First Place for Nevada Students in CIRT’s National Design + Construction Competition

April 25, 2022 - Washington, DC:  The student mentor team from Southern Nevada/Las Vegas pulled-off a nearly unprecedented feat by claiming first place in the Construction Industry Round Table (CIRT) National Design + Construction Competition for the second year in a row. This time, a different group of students and mentors from the same ACE Mentor of America Affiliate were able to claim the $5,000 top prize with their submission in the Memorial of the Future category called “1 October Memorial” in remembrance of the tragic events surrounding the Route 91 Harvest Festival. The senseless act of violence that would end up taking the lives of 60 concert goers and injure over 500 people became a source of the “Vegas Strong” inspiration. The student entry envisioned a memorial serving as a space of commemoration, reflection, and remembrance which will enshrine the identities of the victims and provide a space for anyone to reflect and remember.  READ MORE......

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:
