SteelDay not only gathered more than 10,000 people nationwide to learn about the structural steel industry, but also encouraged participation from AISC full and associate members to show what they can do creatively with steel.
Fourteen sculptures were entered into this year’s SteelDay Sculpture Competition for a chance to be one of five finalists to have their creation on display at the 2014 NASCC: The Steel Conference, March 26-28, in Toronto. There, the ultimate winner will be chosen by attendees! The finalists were chosen via AISC’s Facebook page, where fans were able to view photos of the sculptures and vote for their favorites.
The top five finalists headed to The Steel Conference are (click on the images to enlarge):

Get a Grip

Planning on going to The Steel Conference? Not only will you see these amazing works of steel art on display — you’ll also learn the industry’s latest techniques, see the most innovative products and network with your peers and clients.
Registration for the conference opens on November 18 and AISC members can register for just $300 during that week. But be sure to register early; the rate increases $10 every week until the conference opens, when the price becomes $480. This single registration fee gains you entry to all technical sessions, the exhibition hall, the keynote address and the T.R. Higgins Lecture. It also includes admission to all Structural Stability Research Council, Technology in Steel Construction Conference and World Steel Bridge Symposium sessions.
The main conference offers up to 18.5 PDHs; attendees of short courses can earn an additional 4 PDHs. This year’s keynote speaker is Neil Pasricha. His book, The Book of Awesome, is a #1 international bestseller and his lecture, “1,000 Awesome Things,” will touch upon his project of posting one awesome thing every weekday for 1,000 consecutive weekdays—and he’ll teach you how to bring awesome principles to life in your organization.
