The plat contest was held at the 2018 V.A.S. convention with a total of thirty entries submitted in the following categories: Subdivision, ALTA/NSPS, Boundary/Cadastral, Topographic and Miscellaneous. Many comments were heard about the quality of the submissions, and the judging was extremely close, with some categories only having a few points separating the first and second place winners from the other entries in their respective category.

The following winners were recognized at the Friday night dinner:
