Target and the American Architectural Foundation to Announce Student
Design Contest at School Building Expo; Students to Design Their Ideal
Target and the American Architectural Foundation will launch their
national design contest that asks high school students to generate ideas
about the schools and classrooms of the future at a gathering of school
architects in West Palm Beach, Florida, on Wednesday, March 7. The
contest is titled: "Redesign Your School -- A Contest of Scholarly
Proportions." Students in 9th through 12th grade are asked to submit
original designs for their ideal places to learn in the 21st century.
Scholarships up to $10,000 and other prizes will be presented to
winners, eight of whom will also be invited to Washington, D.C., to
present their ideas.
The announcement will take place at 8:30 a.m. at School Building Expo,
the nation's largest gathering of school design architects and vendors
who supply products for school buildings. School Building Expo is
produced in cooperation with The American Institute of Architects, the
nation's leading architecture association.
