In addition to the 16 finalist projects that will be highlighted over 8 categories, we are pleased to announce that we will also be highlighting Legacy Projects throughout our great State of Washington.  Guests will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite Legacy Project at the end of the evening using a cell phone.  This adds a new interactive element to our Awards Banquet and also highlights the significance of how concrete has helped shape the State!

Projects include: The Grand Coulee Dam, the Town of Concrete, the Kingdome, the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, the Chittenden Locks, the Monroe Street Bridge, and more! 


Guest Emcee, Pat Cashman

Pat CashmanNEW THIS YEAR - We welcome Pat Cashman as our 2018 Banquet Emcee!!! 

Over the years, Pat has done creative work for television, radio, print, cartoons and video games – in addition to being on-air talent and writer for the multi Emmy award-winning “Almost Live” sketch comedy show that ran for 15 seasons on KING TV in Seattle – and also aired two seasons on Comedy Central and in other syndication runs.

Pat has a wide repertoire of voices – none of them his own – that he brought to his work as a radio personality on several stations in Seattle – more than once being honored in newspaper and TV polls as “Favorite Radio Personality”. By ‘more than once’ we mean ‘twice.’

He serves as keynote speaker, auctioneer and emcee for scores of corporate gatherings, awards banquets auctions and charity fundraisers – both locally, and nationally. In his spare time spends his time searching for a tear in the fabric of time. To that end he always carries a needle and thread.
