Student Competition

2023 Construction Management Student Competition

The Roofing Alliance is pleased to announce it will host its ninth Construction Management Student Competition March 8, 2023, at the Kay Bailly Hutchinson Convention Center in room D163/165. This hallmark event exposes students to roofing as a career choice and provides a valuable opportunity to network and connect with fellow students, faculty and Roofing Alliance members.

How it works

Each year, Roofing Alliance leaders select a roofing project in the city where the International Roofing Expo® will be held; this year’s project is Globe Life Field in Dallas. Teams research the chosen project, submit a qualified bid package proposal and complete an oral presentation to illustrate their roofing, project management, estimating and safety knowledge. After receiving project details, each team is assigned a roofing contractor mentor who will provide guidance while students craft their written proposal. Proposals are reviewed and scored by a panel of industry judges.

The top five teams will be invited to attend the International Roofing Expo at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas to present their proposals to the judges. Finalist teams also are invited to attend the Roofing Alliance’s Welcome Reception, tour the Globe Life Field project and attend NRCA’s Industry Awards Ceremony and Cocktail Reception where winning teams will be recognized onstage.

Eligibility

Each team member must be an undergraduate enrolled in the college or university he or she represents during the written proposal and oral presentation portions of the competition.

Get involved

Project details will be shared in August with accredited colleges and universities offering construction management programs.
