2021 PROGRAM EVENT DETAILS

The Michael G. Meyers Design & Scholarship Competition will be fully online in 2021.

This annual event is an ideas competition with an emphasis on creative problem solving and graphic presentation. It is sponsored by Architecture Center Houston Foundation, AIA Houston, and local architectural firms and affiliates.

In previous years students have been asked to design an education center with a focus on sustainability, a multipurpose building for Houston’s Third Ward, a soccer stadium, a museum, and many other challenging projects. We will announce this year’s program in January at the student and teacher workshop. The Competition Committee will host a series of events to help the students 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.
