As of 2014, the national title holders have qualified 139 out of a possible 270 times and, on average, have qualified more than five out of ten years for the national competition. Statistically speaking, once one of them does qualify, on average, their team has nearly one chance in five of winning the competition.  Chances are slightly less than six times out of ten that they will finish in the top five; and, more than eight times out of ten, the team will finish top ten.

Team UAH, the Berkeley Bears, Cal Poly - SLO, Clemson's 3CT, Nevada Reno's Wolf Pack, and the UW-Madison Badgers are the only teams to have won the competition more than once. With the exception of Nevada Reno, all schools have won back-to-back titles; the Berkeley Bears are the only school to have accomplished this feat twice. SLO has won the competition three times in a row.  UW-Madison stands alone in winning five consecutive national championships but Team UAH, the Bears, and the Badgers all hold five of them.

As of 2014, the sponsors have awarded $243,000 in prize money.  There have been 21 schools that received scholarship awards.  Berkeley leads the pack:

Berkeley ($38.5 k); UAH ($35k); Clemson ($26k); Wisconsin-Madison ($27.5k); Cal Poly-SLO ($21.5k); University of Nevada, Reno ($16.5k); Michigan State ($14k); ETS ($10.5 k); OSU ($8k); FIT ($6.5k); Universite Laval ($5.5k); Cal State Sacramento ($5k); Maryland ($5k); South Dakota School of Mines ($5k); University of Florida ($4k); New Hampshire ($4k); Michigan Tech ($3k); UNO ($3k); Akron ($1.5k); University at Buffalo ($1.5k); WKU ($1.5k).

Average placements (1988-2014) for all schools involved in the competition:

Average placements were calculated for all of the schools involved in the competition by dividing the sum of their final placements by the number of times that they appeared at the national level.  Statistics have not been included for schools placing lower that eighth in 1990 because those statistics are not known at this time.

The placements range from a maximum of 1.00 to a minimum of 25.00.  No attempt has been made to rank the participants by taking into account factors such as improvement over time, the categories won at the competition, etc. The University of Nevada, Reno has the best average placement of 3.22 computed based on nine national appearances:

Average for Reno's Wolf Pack = [6+3+1+5+2+5+4+2+1]/9 = 29/9 = 3.22.

Schools having an average placement in the top five:

Schools having an average placement in the top ten:

Schools having an average placement less than top ten:

For the record, the University of Alabama in Huntsville has been competing in the concrete canoe competition since 1986.  Our first boat was 12 feet long and weighed 450 lb, and we finished dead last at the Southeast Regional competition.  In 1987, we placed fifth overall in the region.  The next year, we earned the right to represent the Southeast at the national level by placing first overall, as well as in the concrete canoe competition, at the regional level.
