Communicate the Impact of Landscape Architecture on Public Well-Being, Win $10,000

An important aspect of landscape performance is the impact landscapes have on the public’s well-being; yet the general public doesn’t have a clear understanding of what this means to them in everyday life.

That’s where you could play a role. Our friends at the Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards (CLARB) are seeking entries for the Landscape Architectural Registration Boards Foundation’s 2015 Wayne Grace Memorial Student Competition. The challenge: effectively communicate the vital role that landscape architects play in protecting and enhancing “public welfare”. The prize: $10,000!

This is not a typical student design competition. CLARB’s research on “Landscape Architecture and Public Welfare”, establishes seven key impacts that the landscape architecture projects have on public welfare. To enter the competition, pick one (or more!) of the impacts and create a communication piece (infographic, pamphlet, video, etc) that can be easily shared with the public.

waynegracebuttonEntries are due May 31. Entries are not limited by format and will be judged on:

  • Ease of sharing with the general public
  • Creativity
  • Clarity
  • Conciseness
  • Persuasiveness

The competition is open to junior and senior undergraduate or graduate students in landscape architecture. Entries may be submitted by individuals or groups; for group entries, students in other disciplines may be members of the group, but a landscape architecture student must submit the entry.
