Dallas, Texas — Concrete construction and masonry crew members won't have to wait long for bragging rights when it comes their outstanding projects from this year. World of Concrete 2013 will once again present the CREWS THAT ROCK competition, sponsored by BASF, to honor crew members for their teamwork and contribution to the industry. The top winners will receive a trip to WOC 2013 in addition to widespread industry recognition.
Since crews have always been a huge part of World of Concrete every year, WOC wants to show the world the incredible accomplishments of the commercial construction/masonry industry crews. Following the hugely popular and successful CREWS THAT ROCK contest during WOC 2012, the 2013 competition will once again provide a forum for these hardworking crews to share their stories and photos of projects from 2012.
Crews will submit their stories online at www.crewsthatrock.com along with images capturing projects completed between January 1, 2012 through November 30, 2012. Projects will be based on two categories, Community Service/Not-for-Profit and Commercial/For-Profit, and all submissions must be received by November 30, 2012. Two Grand Prize Awards will be given in each of the categories â€“ Audience Award via online voting and Experts' Choice selected by a panel of industry professionals.
The Grand Prize Winner in each category will receive the following:
-- Up to $1,500 airline credit to fly the crew to WOC 2013.
-- Each winning crew receives three complimentary rooms in an official WOC hotel during WOC 2013 for the crew (based on double occupancy — maximum of 6 individuals; 9 nights total).
-- Two free seminars per person (90-minute or 3-hour).
-- A bag of FREE WOC "swag" from WOC Show Management & BASF.
Also, all four winning projects will be honored at WOC 2013 on Wednesday, February 6, 2012 from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. in Press Conference Room N251. Winners will meet members of the CTR's exclusive sponsor BASF, and WOC Show Management, along with members of the industry press.
