The Roofing Alliance announced on September 13 plans to host its 10th anniversary Construction Management Student Competition on February 7, 2024, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The hallmark event gives students entrée to roofing as a career choice and provides an 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 IRE will be held. 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 teams are then invited to attend IRE and present their proposals to the judges. Finalist teams are also invited to attend the Roofing Alliance’s Welcome Reception, NRCA’s Industry Awards Ceremony and Cocktail Reception, and the winning teams will be recognized onstage.
This year’s project is the Formula 1 Paddock Building in Las Vegas.
Each team member must be an undergraduate enrolled in the college or university he or she represents during the competition's written proposal and oral presentation portions.
The first-place team wins a trophy, a $5,000 L. B. Conway scholarship for the winning school and individual trophies for each team member. The second-place team wins a trophy, a $2,500 Fred C. Good scholarship for the winning school and individual trophies for each team member.
The first-place Best Individual Student Presenter wins a $300 American Express gift card. The second-place Best Individual Student Presenter wins a $200 American Express gift card.
