Participating student teams will attend an intensive two-day Design Jam where they will develop and present their design concepts to a panel of judges. Members of the winning design teams will each receive a scholarship award. There are two sets of $3,000, $2,000, and $1,000 prizes to be won for 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes, respectively for both the landscape and industrial design challenge.
