JCT has launched its 2016 competition for construction students, with a winning prize of £1,000 and runner-up prizes of £250 to be won.
Construction students can enter the competition by producing an innovative, original idea addressing one of the challenges facing the building industry today. Topic categories include skills shortages, sustainability, collaboration, BIM and technology.
Where in previous years the competition has been a solely essay-based exercise, this year students can present their idea in any form they choose; it could be an essay, a video, a photographic essay, a set of designs or drawings – as long as the idea is good, the presentation can vary depending on the candidate’s preference.
The competition is open until Wednesday 16 March 2016. Students can enter by visiting here, where they will find the full brief, helpful hints and registration form.
Institutions can also enter and submit their students’ work on their behalf by visiting the link above.
The JCT Student Competition is a well-established annual award first launched in 2012 as part of JCT’s Education and Training Initiative.As the UK’s leading provider of construction contracts, JCT is committed to providing support and guidance for construction students as well as helping students develop their understanding of construction contracts.
The competition is open to any student registered with a UK educational or professional institution studying a degree, professional qualification, vocational course, trade apprenticeship, or other construction-related programme.
