Student Competition
The five finalist teams gave oral presentations as the final stage of the sixth annual Roofing Alliance Construction Management Student Competition. The teams presented their proposals for installing a new roof system on the Ford Center, the practice facility of the Dallas Cowboys, which was originally installed by KPost Roofing & Waterproofing to a panel of roofing industry experts. The oral presentation scores were combined with the teams’ written proposal scores to determine the winning team.

The Roofing Alliance is proud to announce Texas A&M University as the winning school and Samuel Short of Auburn University as the Best Individual Presenter.
