John Brown University Construction Management students brought home several awards from the Associated Schools of Construction Student Competition. The team placed first against ten other teams in the commercial building category and second against seven other teams in the heavy civil category. Senior Logan Willard won the best presenter award in the heavy civil category.

Each team was divided into separate construction categories. They were assigned construction project packages and spent the next 16-hours developing into proposals or bids for their projects. The final proposal included a set of project plans and specifications, bids from subcontractors and parameters about the project and project site, according to the release.

The teams were judges on their proposals and presentations based on how well they understood the project, estimated and planned the project's specifications and completed the contractual requirements.

The competition was hosted the TEXO Construction Association in Dallas.
