Nominations for awards in the "Top Ten Public Works Projects of the Twentieth Century, 1900-2000" competition. The nominations included such things as project brochures, photographs, video cassettes, articles, written histories, and other miscellaneous items submitted to support the individual cases.
In 1999 the American Public Works Association and its Public Works Historical Society developed a program to honor the ten most outstanding public works projects of the 20th Century. Nominations were invited for public works projects completed within Canada, the United States or its territories, sponsored by a public agency, and made available to the public during the 20th century.
