Submitting Your Entry: 2 Options
In an effort to keep the submission process as efficient and affordable as possible, we have defined two methods for entrants to submit their boards.

Option 1:
Entrants can upload their submissions no later than the 5:00pm on the Competition Deadline to our local partner print house eBlueprint/ARC.

This price includes printing, mounting, and delivery to the Cleveland Design Competition of both 24"x36" boards.

2011 Competition Summary


The 2011 Cleveland Design Competition invites professionals, faculty, students, firms and designers from all over the world to submit extraordinary visions for a new K - 12 public school in Downtown Cleveland. At a time when educators are implementing dramatically new ideas in pedagogy, curricula and organization models, the reinvention of learning environments deserves equal attention. The 2011 Cleveland Design Competition presents an opportunity to re-imagine the school and explore how educational facilities must evolve to provide world-class opportunities for learning.

The challenges that education and educational facilities are currently experiencing are not unique to the City of Cleveland. Many cities throughout the world are faced with a growing achievement gap between high performing and poor performing schools. Families from communities with poor performing schools who seek to improve the educational opportunities for their children have little choice but to move to communities where the school districts are better funded, operated and offer more opportunities for academic success. The 2011 Cleveland Design Competition invites designers to re-evaluate prescribed formulas for school planning and design and offer new approaches that support new educational philosophies that will influence better learning environments in the City of Cleveland and around the world.
