SteelDay not only shows off the structural steel industry’s innovative capabilities, but also serves as an opportunity to show what you can do creatively with steel. How? By entering the second annual Steel Sculpture Competition!
If you’re an AISC full or associate member, join this year’s competition and enter your own steel sculpture for a chance to be one of five finalists to win a trip to the 2013 NASCC: The Steel Conference, April 17-19, in St. Louis, where your sculpture will be on display and the ultimate winner will be chosen by attendees. The winner will also be featured in MSC and receive a catered lunch.
There are only two limitations to the entry: It must be made entirely of steel (shapes and type not specified), and it must fit into a 2-ft by 2-ft by 2-ft box (for shipping purposes).
Submit your entry by sending a description and photos of your sculpture to AISC’s Maria Blood at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 14. All entries will then be posted to SteelDay’s Facebook page, where the top five entries will be determined by a public vote.
Additional information and rules for entering can be found at www.aisc.org/Sculpture.aspx.
Check out last year’s winning sculpture, “The Welder.”
And remember, everyone is invited to attend a free SteelDay event on Friday, September 28! For more information and to find an event near you, visit www.SteelDay.org. Why attend? Watch this video to find out!
