|Background:||This annual award was established at the University of Prince Edward Island in 1986 by the PEI Road Builders and Heavy Construction Association in memory of Frank W. Curtis, a founding member and subsequently general manager of the Association for many years. The PEI Road Builders and Heavy Construction Association is comprised of companies sharing a common goal -- a strong, effective voice in the Heavy Construction Industry. It was incorporated in 1962. The PEI Road Builders and Heavy Construction Association considers the highway system to be the lifeblood of the economy, a superb road system to get products to and from the marketplace. These affect the main source of commerce, i.e., farming, agriculture, fishing, fish-related products and tourism. Good and safe roads are required for the general traveling public. Thus, the Association supports education of students in the Engineering profession through the Frank W. Curtis Memorial Award.|
