Initiated in August 1998, the contest encourages students, professors, State Highway Officials, and consultants from around the world to use the LTPP data compiled by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) over the past 17 years.
The database offers a unique opportunity for everyone to work, individually or in teams, in the development of papers, which will benefit transportation engineers and which will be considered for awards.

FHWA will reserve the right to publish the winning papers in an LTPP research document, which will be available for free to anyone who desires a copy.
