Liz Kokosinski Wins 2017 Daniel V. Terrell Paper Competition

Staff Engineer Liz Kokosinski can now add award-winning writer to her accomplishments! She took the top prize in the Region 4 ASCE Daniel V. Terrell Paper Competition. The competition was open to any ASCE member in the states of Arkansas, Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia under the age of 35. All entrants had to address this topic: “Is it ethical for university engineering faculty to teach technical subject matter to engineering students without obtaining professional licensure?” Besides the paper needing to be 2,000 words or less, Liz also had to present the paper orally in less than 15 minutes at an ASCE Region 4 Assembly meeting in Knoxville, Tennessee. Liz came away the grand prize winner, receiving an impressive bronze plaque and $500, along with ASCE acclaim and recognition. She received her plaque at the November Civil Engineering Professional Development Seminar at Purdue University. The next time you see Liz, congratulate her on her award.
