School designs submitted for awards

All 26 entries will be on display throughout the Conference.
Twenty-six school design projects have been submitted for judging in the 2017 Invitational Exhibition of Educational Environments. 

Awards in the 29th annual competition will be decided by a blind jury pool of architects and superintendents at IASB offices in Springfield on Sep. 21. The event is sponsored by IASB Service Associates.

Winning projects will be announced at the First General Session on Friday, Nov. 17, at the Joint Annual Conference in Chicago. In addition to the Award of Distinction winners, which is the highest level, the jury will choose project winners for Awards of Merit and Honorable Mention.

A description of last year’s winners can be viewed here.

All 26 entries will be on display throughout the Conference and will be added to IASB’s School Design Data File. This searchable online database is available for use by school districts and architectural firms and is updated each year after the competition. It currently contains more than 500 Illinois public school design projects in a database housed on the IASB website.
