How To Apply

Each year WAPA, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT), the American Public Works Association (APWA-WA) and the Washington State Association of County Engineers (WSACE) present awards at the Annual WAPA Awards Banquet to those asphalt paving projects judged to be the most outstanding in the State. The awards are presented at WAPA’s Annual Meeting in November of each year.

These awards are generally nominated by the WAPA members and/or WSDOT, APWA-WA and WSACE, but project owners and project consultants/management firms are also encouraged to apply, in cooperation with the project’s paving contractor.

The WSDOT/WAPA Paving Awards use a different nomination form/rating system. Download the WSDOT Paving Award Submittal Form Fill v.2024 for a WSDOT project. These nominations originate through the Project Engineering Offices (PEO) and need to be submitted by the WSDOT PE in charge of the project.

To apply for non-WSDOT paving projects, download the 2024 PAVING AWARD NOMINATION FORMS (Projects Paved in 2023) and follow the instructions included on the form.  Project pictures showing the paving are also welcome to accompany the nomination form.
