2023 Bridge Building Competition Results

We want to thank our sponsor, Illinois Valley Surveying and Consulting Inc. for their generous support and sponsorship of the Bridge Building Competition. We also want to thank the St. Bede Ambassadors for volunteering to run the check in stations, busting stations and the scorer's table.

This year we had 12 schools, 240 students, and 83 bridges entered into the competition. Awards were given to the top 5 individual bridges with the highest scores (weight held 50% & efficiency score 50%) and top 2 schools overall which was determined by calculating the average of each team. Below are the results:


1st Place-Dalzell (Liam Day, Sophia Simpson, Alex Taylor)

2nd Place-Dimmick (Carson Sellett, Emmitt Olsen, & Kolten Leffelman)

3rd Place-Ladd (LI Builders: Ben, Braxton, & Rocio)

4th Place-LaSalle (Team 61)

5th Place-LaSalle (Team 76)

Top School (Average of all Team Scores)

Champion: Ladd Grade School
