Still time to apply for SC&RA’s Job of the Year Competition

July 30, 2021  By Crane & Hoist Canada Staff

Every company has that one job — or maybe multiple jobs — that they like to brag about.

Well, the SC&RA is providing the perfect forum for accolades through its Job of the Year Competition.

Because the Annual Conference was moved to October of this year, the deadline for applying to the competition has been moved to Aug. 17.

Now is the time to learn how easy it is to apply. Each entry is judged individually on the elements of the job. What matters most is clearly explaining your focus on safety, planning, overcoming obstacles, and execution.



Entries are submitted based on the total contract amount (in US$):

  • Under $150,000
  • $150,000 to $750,000
  • $750,000 to $2 million
  • More than $2 million

Application requirements

There is a $200 fee per entry to participate. Applicants must also provide a description of the job performed (maximum two pages); photographs; and start and end dates.

On Oct. 28, during the conference, there is a 15-minute presentation and it must be done live at the show. Winners will be announced during the closing night awards dinner.

Here are dates you need to keep in mind:

Applications close: August 17
Presentations due: Sept. 27
Contestants’ meeting: Oct. 26
Competition: Oct. 28
Winners announced: Oct. 29
