2014-2015 Topic:  “What Led You to Towards Civil Engineering, and How Do You Feel ASCE Can Better Promote the Profession through K-12 Initiatives?” The essay should discuss the applicant’s reasoning in choosing to pursue the civil engineering career path and how they feel ASCE can do a better job of outreach to the next generation of potential engineers.
