Awards Program

The Slag Cement Association (SCA) has been honoring the exceptional use of slag cement in concrete construction since 2010 with the Slag Cement Project of the Year Awards. Each spring the SCA holds an awards ceremony to honor the winners.

In 2021, the Slag Cement Association re-branded the program to the Slag Cement in Sustainable Concrete Awards Program.  The categories awarded include; Architectural, Durability, Infrastructure, High Performance, Innovative Applications, and Lower Carbon Concrete. 

The program also honors research in the field of slag cement in concrete as well. Research winners receive a $1,000 stipend from the SCA to help attend the ceremony, usually held in-person.

The 2022 Awards Ceremony will be held in conjunction with the Spring ACI Convention on Wednesday, April 5th, 2023.
