On Saturday, March 11, 2017 from 8 a.m. to 12 noon, GHD, SAME Guam Post, the Guam Society of Professional Engineers, and UOG Endowment Foundation are sponsoring the Fifth Annual Harold Dean Gillham Bridge Design/Build Competition teams from private and public high schools will be competing in a variety of categories.
This event is the culminating activity for E-Week (Engineers Week) with the goal of exposing the island’s young people to the engineering profession and increasing dialogue about the critical need for professional engineers on the island and in the region.
Participating schools were given free bridge building kits and guidelines during E-Week in preparation for this competition. Notre Dame High School swept all the awards in 2016 beating out nearly 30 competitors.
The competition will be held in the Anthony Leon Guerrero Multi-Purpose Room #129 located in the Jesus & Eugenia Leon Guerrero Business & Public Administration Building on the UOG campus. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top winners in each category. The winners will be judged based on Best Aesthetics, Strength to Weight Ratio, and Highest Load Applied.
