This year's Communications Competition for student and graduate members of ICE in Hong Kong has now opened.
The competition, which originated in the UK, aims to help younger members develop their skills and techniques for public consultation.
Participants will need to use their interpersonal skills as they present a civil engineering project at a mock public consultation meeting. They'll need to win over the judges and audience as they deliver a presentation and face questions on how the project will affect a local community.
Conditions of entry:
- Team must have four to six members and comprise at least two current ICE student and/or graduate members (including those working towards technician membership).
- All team members must have a maximum of seven years’ industry experience (maximum of 10 years’ industry experience for those working towards technician membership).
- Teams are permitted to enter the competition in consecutive years.
The competition consists of written tasks and a 30-minute interactive mock public consultation meeting.
In addition to the presentation, the teams have to prepare the following documents to support delivery of the mock public consultation meeting. The project scenario will be released once the application is closed.
- Consultation strategy document
- Public information leaflet
- Executive summary document
