Why Apply for Project Precast 2025?

Project Precast 2025 Application OPEN
September 2024

Here's What Students Say About Project Precast 

If you are a student who has had precast concrete as part of your education - this is for you!

If chosen for one of the teams  for 2025 you will receive airfare to and from Indianapolis, all meals, 4-night hotel stay, entrance to the 2025 PCI Convention --- and a chance to compete for a team cash prize of $4,000.  There are other cash prizes too.

Things To Know:  Students apply as individuals, and are assigned to either a team of 4 or as an alternate.  You will be notified on November 1 whether or not you are chosen, you will also be told if you are on a team or as an alternate.  

  • Four Students Per Team (2 architecture, 1 CIM or CM, and 1 engineering)
  • Two alternates will also be chosen, all expenses paid.
  • Cash prize for winning team $4,000 ($1,000 per team member)
  • Cash Prize for "People's Choice" Award ($500 per team member)
  • WOW Award is a cash prize of $500 for one student who stands out.  This is totally subjective and has no criteria.

At the end of the program, each team will own its design solution and be competing for a cash prize of $4,000. There is also a cash prize award of $500 for the People's Choice award, voted on by the audience.


The goals of this competition? To introduce students to the many uses of precast/prestressed concrete and to showcase the availability of design assist by the precast industry. And to do the competition in the course of multiple days during the PCI Convention.

Students will not only need to use the knowledge they have gained in the classroom, but they will need to explore the show floor, call upon experts for help, and scope out many of the accessories used in precast concrete design.


One of the things that will make this competition unusual is that each team will have a precaster sponsor who will work directly with their team as a mentor and coach.
