Engineers Without Borders-USA, a Boulder, Colo.-based group of more than 12,000 student and professional engineers and others—who build sustainable infrastructure in the world’s poorest communities, such as this Guatemala bridge project (below)—has won the 2010 Henry C. Turner prize for innovation, the National Building Museum said on July 12. The $25,000 prize, endowed since 2002 by Turner Construction Co., New York City, and named for its founder, was awarded to EWB-USA for its impact in the developing world and for “instilling a sense of global responsibility in the next generation of engineers,” says the Turner prize jury. The award will be presented on Sept. 21 in Washington, D.C., and will connect “the way engineering is regarded as a profession with the ability to make a difference,” says Cathy Leslie, executive director of EWB-USA.
