1st Place:
Amber Kunz
"My generation, Gen Z, is said to be a collaborative cohort that cares deeply about others and fosters a pragmatic attitude about the challenges of the future. I personally identify with these values, and hope to embody empathy and care as well as resourcefulness and reason as I begin my career as a Civil Engineer...  I am proud to be part of a new generation of engineers, and I strive to learn as much as I can from experts in the field, but also be accepting of ways of doing things that are not as established or widely practiced. At the end of the day, it will be the concern and care for people that drives our industry, and being 'Future Ready' is essential to care and provide for the future Utah population."
2nd Place:
SeyedeZahra Golazad
"Infrastructure should not only move people and resources efficiently but also nurture human health and quality of life while protecting ecosystems. Achieving this balance will require civil engineers to be systems thinkers who can integrate scientific knowledge with ethical, social, cultural, and aesthetic considerations in our designs. Our infrastructure decisions shape communities and landscapes long into the future, so we must plan and build wisely for generations to come."
3rd Place:
Logan Ward
"I work with engineers every day that are involved in legislature, code committees, and publication groups. Being involved in what codes and standards get accepted in our communities will help us ensure that we are designing as a profession for the future, even if the cost is higher... It will take civil engineers designing with the support of the community to design resilient structures for the future, and I plan to be a part of that."
