The Region 4 Assembly, which includes all members of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) in the states of Arkansas, Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia, has established a very meaningful and worthwhile competition and award for a Younger Member who resides within Region 4. A Younger Member is defined as a member, associate member or affiliate not over 35 years of age on February 1, 2018.
The award is named after Daniel V. Terrell of the Kentucky Section. Dean Terrell served as President of National ASCE in 1954. This award is presented annually for the outstanding paper submitted on a topic established by the Region 4 Assembly. Two (2) papers per Section may be entered in the Daniel V. Terrell Paper Competition. If one chooses to enter the Daniel V. Terrell competition, the paper must be submitted to the Terrell Committee by the entrant's Section President (David Harris) by April 1, 2018. The entrant must then present their paper during the Spring 2018 meeting of the Region 4 Assembly to be held in July of 2018 in Charleston, South Carolina (specific date and exact location to be determined).
This year's topic is "How does the personal and professional use of social media relate to the ASCE Code of Ethics?" The first place award is a plaque and $500. The second place prize is $250.
For complete rules and information on the Terrell Paper Competition, visit the Region 4 website.
Travel arrangements to the meeting should be coordinated with the entrant's respective Branch and/or Section. Financial assistance may be available.
