Four students from drafting and design teacher Mr. Royer’s class will be competing in the Architectural High School Design Competition for its second consecutive year. The ceremony will be held on May 3 at Philadelphia University where the team could win up to $1,000 in cash.
The group is made up of senior Alex Ohme, senior Emily Sterner, junior Emily Gillmen and is led by senior Mckayla Cooley.
The team will be given a plot of land along with numerous guidelines including limited space and parameters that their project has to follow.
The guidelines include given weather properties. Structural properties have to be built for its location and be able to be transported as well in order to build a structure. The design will be placed on a presentation board that represents their whole idea.
“This year we have new materials, new techniques and new ideas,” Mr. Royer said. “The group is incredible.”
Last year the team came home tied at second place and a prize of $400 split among the group.
They will be using satin photo grade paper this year compared to last years ultra white plane paper.
“We are looking forward to sharing our ideas the day of the competition,” senior Mckayla Cooley said. “Hopefully we take home a nice prize.”
