Passive Voice: Find Eight Mistakes

When I was worked as an engineer in Cali, Colombia, my company awarded a multi-million dollar contract to build a new school. The project was closely supervising by the city officials, and tight deadlines set. Therefore, we had to work quickly and efficiently. I was assigning as a project manager and giving tasks that required me to be on site. The construction was be complicated by constant rains.  However, we managed to complete the school by the next academic year, and the company chosen as one of the best engineering and construction companies in the country.
