Completing more than 4,400 hours of community service during the 2010-11 academic year, the Iowa State University Associated General Contractors (AGC) student chapter was awarded first place in the 2011 AGC of America Outstanding Student Chapter Contest.
The group submitted their 2011 spring break community service projects that earned them the $1,500 first place prize with the recognition.
The AGC chapter’s major community service events in 2011 were 16 restoration and building projects across Cedar Rapids, Palo and Iowa City, Iowa. About 40 student club members contributed. These projects contributed 2,700 hours to their 4,400 community service hour total. For more information about the Iowa State AGC student chapter go to www.stuorg.iastate.edu/agc.
