2002 National Concrete Canoe Competition"
Madison, Wisconsin

The presentations, displays, and boats showcased at the 2002 ASCE/MBT National Concrete Canoe Competition were unparalleled in the history of the competition and we photographed each and every one of them...  Well, almost all of them.  We forgot to take a photograph during the presentation made by Virginia Tech but we have asked them to send us one.

The display and boat photographs were purposefully taken with as little clutter (participants, spectators, etc.) as possible to show exactly what each school had to offer.  We appreciate the cooperation and efforts made by the participants during the competition to make this massive undertaking possible.

We have included vital stats and supplementary information about every school that participated in the 2002 competition.  Schools are listed in descending order of finish and spreadsheets for the academic portion of the competition follow the listing.

Clemson's 3CT won overall; Western Kentucky University scored the most design points (presentation points + product points + display points + design paper); and, Universite Laval was the only school to finish top five in every category (presentation, product, display, design paper, and races).

Additional statistics for all NCCC competitions, as well as schools that competed since year 2000, can be found in "For the Record."  You may also enjoy seeing our exclusive section describing the 2002 ASCE/MBT NCCC Racing Awards and reading Dr. Gilbert's 2002 NCCC Commentary.
