Chicago — The American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) launched a “Steel Selfie” Instagram contest for industry professionals and college students to share their creative steel selfies and win prizes each month. The contest coincides with the introduction of AISC's new Instagram account (@aisc) at NASCC: The Steel Conference, March 25-27 in Nashville.

To enter the contest, snap a photo of yourself with someone or something related to structural steel and upload it to your Instagram profile. If you're involved in the structural steel industry, tag your photo with #SteelSelfieContest; if you're a student, tag it with #SteelSelfieContest #Student. Then share your photo with friends.

Each month, 10 contest winners (five industry winners and five student winners) will be selected based on the number of "likes" their photo receives on Instagram. Vote for your favorite steel selfies at Winners will be contacted via Instagram and receive a $10 gift card to their choice of one of the following vendors: Amazon, Chipotle or Starbucks.
