Event Detail






The ACEC Colorado Engineering Excellence Awards (EEA) program annually recognizes consulting engineering firms for projects that demonstrate an exceptional degree of innovation, complexity, achievement and value. For more than 50 years, Colorado firms have entered their most innovative projects and studies into this competition. Although the ACEC Colorado EEA program generally follows entry guidelines established for the ACEC National EEA program, ACEC Colorado rules are different. Therefore, please review ACEC Colorado Official Rules, thoroughly. Projects being entered must be substantially completed and ready for use from Nov. 1, 2019-Sept. 16, 2022. For more information, click here.
