The Ohio Contractors Association held its 12th annual Student Estimating Competition in Columbus on February 16th. The Civil and Construction Technology (CCET) program sent six students and one faculty advisor to the competition. The YSU students competed against nine other schools from Ohio (Ohio Northern University, University of Toledo, University of Akron, University of Cincinnati, University of Dayton, Bowling Green State University, Cleveland State University, The Ohio State University, and Ohio University).
The YSU team was one team out of four teams that submitted a responsive bid after the first day of the competition and was the team closest to the actual bid on the project. The lowest responsive bid gave the YSU Team the 1st choice of when to present their project to the judges on the second day of the competition.
The teams that placed in the competition were The Ohio State University, University of Cincinnati, and Ohio Northern.
