DANIEL V. TERRELL PAPER COMPETITION 2020

Younger Member Katie Byran placed 3rd with her Daniel V. Terrell Paper and Presentation. The Daniel V. Terrell Paper Competition usually focuses on current ethical topics engineers face in the field. Katie submitted her paper following this year's topic:

Cannon 6 of the ASCE Code of Ethics states, "Engineers shall act in such a manner as to uphold and enhance the honor, integrity, and dignity of the engineering profession and shall act with zero tolerance for bribery, fraud, and corruption."

Recently, the media has exposed examples of "pay-to-play" scandals over a broad range of organizations from college admissions to engineering and construction firms. How does this affect the Civil Engineering profession?

Katie presented her paper virtually during the Region 4 Assembly of Delegates. Congratulations Katie, we are so proud of you!
