The U.S. Military Academy and the U.S. Naval Academy are proud to announce the first-ever Army-Navy Bridge Design Contest. This competition is a special edition of the national West Point Bridge Design Contest, created specifically for 6th- and 7th-grade students. The contest provides students with a realistic introduction to engineering through an engaging, hands-on design experience.
Students may work as individuals or in teams of two. There’s no cost to enter the competition. Contestants may compete on behalf of either the Army or the Navy. Students must enter this contest through a teacher sponsor. No individual submissions will be accepted.
Design submissions are due March 1, 2012. Top designs will advance to semifinal competitions. The top Army semifinalist and the top Navy semifinalist will compete in a final round competition at West Point in May 2012.
