With Memorial Day just behind us, and the school year wrapping up, it can mean only one thing: Here comes summer! Well, that, and that there is less than a month for Southeast firms to submit your "best projects" for ENR Southeast's annual Best Projects competition!

That's right. It seems to come earlier every year, and this year the deadline is set for July 2. Which, amazingly enough, is right around the corner.

There are a couple more changes for the Southeast competition. First, to enable projects from across the country to be eligible to compete, ENR Southeast and its sister regional publications expand their traditional editorial coverage areas. This year, the Southeast region has been adjusted slightly from a year ago and is now the home for projects located in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Puerto Rico.

Additionally, we are now utilizing a new system for submitting projects that should make it easier and quicker for people to submit their projects.

In other words, it's time to get started. Because July 2 will be here before you know it!

We look forward to receiving your "best projects" entries. And good luck!
