Greetings to you--one of the best minds of our industry. Congratulations on deciding to be part of the ASCE Grand Challenge by sharing your innovative idea.

You will use this portal to upload your entry, add authors, communicate with the contest staff and stay informed about the contest as its progress towards the deadline of midnight (EST) March 4, 2019. To create an account for the 2019 Contest please select "Create an Account". Returning submitters welcome back. You may update your submission until the contest close date.

The 2019 Contest has several new features. Our new Best Entrepreneur Award celebrates the best submission from an entrepreneur. We are piloting a local student competition program and will showcase these student winners at the final event in June. Finally, we have two new topic categories; Improvements in Clean Water and New Construction Materials and Methodology. The three returning categories are; Internet of Things (IoT), Sustainable Engineering, and Next Generation Transportation. and if your idea doesn't fit into one of these categories, we have a sixth category for General Civil Infrastructure Improvement.

Participants may submit entries either as individuals or as teams. Documents to help you through the submission process are available for download after you create a 2019 account. Even if you have entered a previous contest, you need to create a new account for the 2019 contest. Only one account is required for each team or individual author and multiple unique entries may be submitted under each team or individual account.

Good luck.
