‘Architecture Is …’ AIA Akron’s annual competition for T-shirt Design and Essay writing for Grades Kindergarten through 12th grade and Special Education in the spring.

The purpose of these contests is to help promote an awareness of the roles that architecture and the built environment play in everyday life.  Submissions reflect each student’s personal interpretation of just what “Architecture is …”  This program was enthusiastically received by students and teachers alike and is currently on hiatus.

Past years events took place at Camp Y Noah – Green, Ohio
