The 2018 NSPS Student Competition will be held in conjunction with the Spring meeting of the National Society of Professional Surveyors during the Western Regional Surveying Conference. This is a joint conference of The Nevada Association of Land Surveyors (NALS), the Arizona Professional Land Surveyors (APLS) and the Utah Council of Land Surveyors (UCLS) and the Western Federation of Professional Surveyors (WestFed). It is being held at the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. The competition will begin prior to the actual start of the conference and overlap the NSPS meeting by two days.


The Competition will be held February 17-21. There will be a briefing session early on the evening of the 17th that all teams and advisers are required to attend. Critical instructions for the next day’s activities will be provided. The exact time and location for this briefing session is still being confirmed. The 18th will be the Field Day, the 19th will be the Office Calculation Day and the 20th will be the Presentations.


The awards will be presented on the afternoon of the 21st at approximately 1pm at the beginning of the NSPS Board of Directors meetings.
