To engage students in geotechnical engineering innovation and practice, the Geo-Institute of ASCE organizes 5 different student competitions during its annual conference. These competitions include:

  • Geo-Wall Competition where students design and construct mechanically stabilized earth retaining walls
  • Geo-Prediction competition where students predict behavior of the ground or geotechnical structure in-situ
  • Geo-Poster competition where students share their research outcomes through poster presentations
  • Geo-Video competition where students produce short video on any topic related to geotechnical education and practice
  • Geo-Shirt competition where students design shirts that reflect the theme of the conference

The National Geo-Challenge 2023 Student Competitions will be organized on March 27, 2023, during Geo-Congress 2023 at Los Angeles, California.
