TV Star Kevin Nealon Returns to Emcee Engineering Excellence Awards Gala in Washington D.C., April 17

Actor/Comedian Kevin Nealon will once again emcee the Engineering Excellence Awards (EEA) Gala at the 2018 ACEC Convention in Washington D.C. on April 17

Nealon is well-known for his long-time tenure on Saturday Night Live and his performances in several Adam Sandler movies and the HBO series Weeds. He currently stars in the CBS weekly comedy show Man With a Plan.

The black-tie Gala will be followed by an After Party, featuring live music and dancing, which is free to all Gala registrants.

Since 1967, U.S. engineering firms have entered their most innovative projects and studies in ACEC's EEA program—"the Academy Awards of the engineering industry"—which honors the year's most outstanding engineering accomplishments. Projects that are winners at state level EEA competitions are eligible for ACEC's national EEA competition.

Each year a distinguished panel of 25-30 judges, representing a cross section of industry, government, academia and media, assemble for three days to rank submissions on engineering excellence. The panel in 2018 will select 36 top award winners—20 Honor Awards and 16 Grand Awards—with one Grand Conceptor Award winner chosen from the 16 Grand Awards as the year's most outstanding engineering achievement.
