Project Precast 2022

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 6 teams you will receive airfare to and from Kansas City, all meals, 3-night hotel stay, entrance to the 2022 PCI Convention --- and a chance to compete for a cash prize of $3000.

The PCI Foundation and the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute are teaming up to host a new design competition called “Project Precast.” The competition is designed for students and recent graduates of PCI Foundation sponsored education programs, think of this as a cross between the TV shows “Project Runway” and “Shark Tank.”

  • Six Teams
  • Cash Prize for "People's Choice" Award ($500 per team member)
  • New "Secret Project" and subject expert help

At the end of the program, each team will own its design solution and be competing for a cash prize of $3000. An audience choice award will also be presented. 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 two 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. Six PCI Certified precasters will have the ability to compete against each other for the honor of taking home the first Project Precast Trophy.
