I Look Like A Civil Engineer Mother’s Day Writing Contest

Mom’s often don’t get recognition for the wonderful things they do for their family. Civil Engineers also often don’t get recognized for the wonderful things they do to improve our communities. Therefore, I Look Like A Civil Engineer wants to celebrate Civil Engineers who are also Mothers.
