About the Competition

The 12th Annual High School Design Competition  (HSDC) welcomed high school students from all over the state of Georgia. The competition features two levels: beginner and advanced. The beginner level is designed for students in grades 9 and 10 with no or little architectural background. Advanced is best for grades 11 and 12, or students who have a solid design background. HSDC’s primary goal is to engage high school students in the design process and educate them about the possibilities of careers in the field.
