The deadline for contestants to submit entries in the ENR New York 2015 Best Projects competition has been extended to July 20 from July 6.

The annual program honors outstanding achievements in design and construction in categories from health care, higher education and highways to water, energy and industrial plants.

Entries are evaluated by an expert panel of design and construction professionals on the basis of teamwork, quality, safety, innovation and community impact.

Winning projects for each of the competition's 20 categories will be profiled in the Nov. 16 issue of ENR New York. One project in each region also will be named Project of the Year and receive extensive feature coverage in the same issue.

Winning projects in all 10 regions also will be recognized at awards events this fall.

Winners of regional competitions will then compete against one another in ENR's national Best of the Best Projects 2015 competition. Those winners will be profiled in the national edition of ENR in early 2016.
