Every year our American Society of Professional Estimators Metro St. Louis Chapter 19 advertises to students in colleges and universities studying in construction related programs to apply for a $1,000.00 scholarship. This year we had some absolutely outstanding applicants.

Thanks to the generosity of several construction general contractor and subcontractor companies who donated money or objects for our silent auction and for the wonderful attendance at our 3rd annual Trivia Night in October ’22, our Metro St. Louis Metro Chapter of the American Society of Professional Estimators (ASPE) is able to award not one, not two, not three, not four, but five scholarships this year!

The highest scoring applicant was Kyle Wesolowski (Southern Illinois University – Edwardsville). He was awarded a check for the $1,000.00 scholarship we typically award.

We wish all who applied great success in their future endeavors. They are each perfect examples of the people who are needed for the future of our industry.

We hope to hold our scholarship fundraising Trivia Night next March once again. Check our website www.aspe19stlouis.org early next year for the announcement and join in the fun.
