SCA Award Program Information
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. The 2019 awards ceremony will take place at the ACI Fall Convention in Raleigh, NC, on Wednesday, October 28th, 2020 during the session “Slag Cement in Durable Concrete”. SCA representatives will present the awards to winning teams in attendance and gave an overview of each project to session attendees. Research award winners will also be giving a 10 minute presentation on their projects to attendees.
“The SCA awards program has always been focused on honoring the innovative use of slag cement in durable concrete. Adding this research category to the lineup has been a great way to expand that concept while getting students involved.”
