Each team is required to have at least one CAED Faculty member. Each team must also have at least two CAED students per faculty member. The idea is to create teams with equal responsibility and credit for the design proposal. Currently employed, full-time CAED faculty members are eligible as are any CAED part-time instructors who were responsible for a course or section in the Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 semester. For the purpose of this competition, graduate teaching assistants should register as students. All current CAED students (including May or August 2021 graduates) are eligible to compete.


Awardees will be selected by a jury of designers, representatives of the Farm to School Program, and Walls Elementary School (TBA by the end of May).


$3000 in awards have been set aside. The number and of amount of each award will be determined by the jury. The Farm to School program, in concert with Walls Elementary school, is raising funds for and intends to build one of the winning projects.


Representatives of the Farm to School Program and Walls Elementary School are interested in a Learning Pavilion that functions as such, that represents and teaches the values it espouses, and that is exciting and fun.
