The NEWH Sustainable Design Competition provides students with the opportunity to showcase their design skills while utilizing the very best in sustainable design products and practices. Our sponsors have generously donated the awards – one to the winning undergraduate student and one to the winning graduate student and student airfare and lodging to the awards event.
Design competition project type and criteria changes annually. Students must execute a dynamic, creative, cutting edge design utilizing the very best products and technologies which encompass sustainable topics including: site selection, water efficiency, energy conservation, products/materials, and indoor environmental quality. In addition to the physical aspects of design, the functional daily use of the space and how the occupants can operate the facility in a sustainable manner such as encouraging recycling and reuse, water and energy conservation to create a truly sustainable business. All work must be student’s original work. Two students may work as a team on one project, but only one student award will be presented and travel/lodging for one student representative to be paid to the award presentation.
In addition to the criteria all submittals are judged as to their professional appearance.
