Student Video Contests
The ARTBA Foundation supports two student video contests to promote the U.S. transportation design and construction industry.
The contests are aimed at helping students get a better understanding about the importance of transportation infrastructure investment to the U.S. economy and quality of life, and to learn more about the industry and potential career opportunities.
ARTBA’s Research & Education Division (RED) sponsors one video contest, and the Women Leaders Council (WLC) sponsors the other. The RED contest has two categories: general transportation impacts, trends, funding; and transportation safety. The WLC contest is focused on why young people should pursue a career in the transportation design and construction industry.
Both contests are divided into two age groups: elementary, middle or high school students; and post-secondary, college and graduate students. Winners are selected for both age groups, for a total of six first-place videos.
Each winner receives a cash prize and winning entries are shown during ARTBA National Convention.
Here are two 2017 winners:
