    About Concrete Canoe Each year, engineering students from across the na- tion and beyond design and build a canoe using con- crete as the principle building material . The project provides students with a practical application of the engineering principles they gain in the classroom, along with important team and project manage- ment skills that will be beneficial to their future ca- reers . Each spring, students represent their schools in the ASCE Regional Conference Concrete Canoe Com- petition . The event challenges the students’ knowl- edge, creativity and stamina, while showcasing the versatility and durability of concrete as a building material .

    This year, the Great Lakes Regional Conference Con- crete Canoe Competition will be held at Homer Lake Forest Preserve, approximately 25 minutes east of the University of Illinois campus . The lake was host to the ASCE National Concrete Canoe Competition (NCCC) this past June . For location details, please see the maps on the following pages .

    During the competition, teams are judged on vari- ous categories that combine to produce their overall score . Twenty-five percent of each team’s total score is based on the engineering design and construction principles used in the creation of their concrete ca- noe; 25 percent is based on a technical design report detailing the planning, development, testing, and construction of their canoe; and 25 percent is based on a formal business presentation highlighting the canoe’s design, construction, racing ability, and oth- er innovative features . The remaining 25 percent of each team’s score is based on the performance of the canoe and the paddlers in five different race events: men’s and women’s slalom/endurance races, and men’s, women’s, and co-ed sprint races .
