Encouraging students, professors, and highway engineers from around the world to get involved in using the Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) program database is the goal of the Fifth International Contest on LTPP Data Analysis. Contest participants can work individually or in teams to develop papers that will benefit the transportation community. The event is cosponsored by FHWA and the Transportation and Development Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers.

The contest has four categories:

  1. Undergraduate students (individual or team entry)
  2. Graduate students (individual or team entry)
  3. Partnership (Students can partner with a highway agency or consultants)
  4. Curriculum (Professors can submit course curricula developed using the LTPP data).

Entries are judged on:

In the undergraduate, graduate, and partnership categories, winners will receive a first place prize of $1,500; a second place prize of $1,000; and a third place prize of $500. The curriculum category winner will receive $1,000.

The contest deadline is August 16, 2004. Visit www.fhwa.dot.gov/pavement/ltpp/contest2004.cfm for more information, including a contest guide and winning entries from previous contests.
