The Michael G. Meyers Design & Scholarship Competition is an annual event sponsored by Architecture Center Houston Foundation, AIA Houston, and local architecture firms and affliates. This is an idea competition with an emphasis on creative problem solving and graphic presentation.

In previous years students have been asked to design a multi-purpose building for Houston's Third Ward, a soccer stadium, a museum, a recycling center, and many other challenging projects. We will announce this year's program in January. The Competition Committee will host a series of events to help the student learn basic architectural drawing skills and understand the competition requirements. The winners will be announced in May and an awards ceremony will be held. 

All Houston area high school students are eligible to participate regardless of class affiliation or age. Entrants are requested to enter only once per year as a member of a team or as an individual. Teachers and Counselors are encouraged to promote this scholarship competition.
