Engineering Excellence Awards (EEA)


The ACEC/MW Engineering Excellence Awards (EEA) competition recognizes engineering firms for projects that demonstrate a high degree of achievement, value, and ingenuity and provides Metropolitan Washington area firms the opportunity to obtain regional – and possibly national – recognition. 

Please note that the Regional ACEC/MW Competition mirrors the National Competition in terms of content and criteria so that our award winners are better prepared to submit to the National Competition.
