Student Video Contest
The ARTBA Foundation supports an annual student video contest to promote the U.S. transportation design and construction industry.
The Student Transportation Construction Industry Video Contest is aimed at helping students gain a better understanding of 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 the contest and has two submission categories: general transportation impacts, trends, funding; and transportation safety.
The contest is 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 four first-place videos.
Each winner receives a cash prize and winning entries are shown during ARTBA’s National Convention.
Here are two 2017 winners:
