Two winners will each be awarded a $3,000 scholarship for the Spring 2019 semester.

"Technological disruption in the construction industry has accelerated in the last 3-5 years as companies adopt emerging technologies like Building Information Modeling (BIM), telematics and IoT, AR/VR and more - and the pace is only accelerating down," said Mika Majapuro, senior director, product management, Teletrac Navman.

To enter, applicants must submit either an essay (500 to 700 words) or a two-minute video about one of the following topics on how technology is changing the construction industry now and for years to come:

  • What will a construction site look like 10 years from now?
  • How will technology and the internet of things influence the ways buildings are constructed?
  • How will construction jobs change? Which jobs will be added and which will be taken away?
  • How will construction productivity keep up with economic productivity?
  • How will the growing shift towards eco-friendly practices impact construction?

To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must be U.S. citizens currently enrolled in a 2- or 4-year American college or university. The $3,000 prize may be applied toward academic costs only, including tuition and textbooks.
