2019 PROGRAM: EMANCIPATION 2020
In 2019, the MGMC Committee is hard at work challenging the students to design a new mixed-use building in Third Ward next to the new Emancipation Park. The committee is hosting the annual design and program workshop, a project site tour of Emancipation Park and surrounding areas, plus a mid-term review - all to assist the students in understanding the program and developing the skills needed to complete a successful project. There will be an awards ceremony to recognize winning projects.
All Houston area high school students are eligible to participate regardless of class affiliation or age. Students are requested to enter only once per year as either a member of a team or as an individual. Teachers and Counselors are encouraged to promote this scholarship competition.
