Design Drafting Brochure

The Design Drafting Competition is a contest designed for Senior High School and College level students. The contest provides recognition to students for creative design, successful problem solving and craftsmanship in preparing architectural drawings.

Entries are evaluated for detail, accuracy and originality of work. Objectives of the contest are to introduce the student to the construction industry in a positive and challenging manner, while fostering a sense of self-worth and building confidence.

Mentoring programs between students and educators are also encouraged. Each local sponsor is furnished with a “Design Problem” that is designed by a licensed Architect or Engineer and is generic enough to meet the needs of all areas of the US and our international affiliates.

Project drawings must include a minimum of:

  • a floor plan
  • exterior elevation
  • site plan and placement of structure

National winners receive prizes.
