The competition and Kids Construction Zone attract over 4,000 spectators and the event is well received and covered in the local media. 

Sponsorship benefits are listed below. Icing on the Roof and Candy Cane sponsorships include event presence and the opportunity to network with teams and interact with the attending public.

Event sponsorships help fund Architecture Center Houston's educational and public programs that include exhibits, lectures, walking tours, K-12 education programs and college scholarships. Architecture Center Houston is a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
