SVBA Green Playhouse Design Competition

The Shenandoah Builders Association is excited to announce the first annual SVBA Green Playhouse Design Competition. This event will provide students an opportunity to use their knowledge from math, science, CTE, elective, and MTC classes to design a playhouse. There are two categories of students, those in K – 9 and those in Grade 10 – postgraduate. Students are welcome to participate in an independent project, class project, or just for fun. The designs created should be shown on a 24″ x 36″ poster board, scale drawings, and/or physical model. Submissions are due to the SVBA office by Friday, February 27, 2015, at 57 S. Main St. Suite 211, Harrisonburg, VA.
The winning entry in each category will receive a $50 gift certificate to Larkin Arts and one winning entry will be built at the SVBA Home and Garden show on Saturday, April 11, 2015. This built structure will then be auctioned off to benefit the Explore More Discovery Museum in downtown Harrisonburg. All design entries will be displayed at the SVBA Home and Garden show and can be picked up on Sunday, April 12, 2015, at the Rockingham County Fair Grounds.
Sign up today at www.valleybuilders.org. Registration is free and open to all students.
For those teachers wanting to use this in their class but a little unsure of how to go about the design process, Harrisonburg architect, Charles Hendricks can assist in getting your class started. Simply contact him to schedule a time to visit your group.
Playhouses should be limited to a 10′ by 10′ structure no taller than 8′ to allow for transport from the SVBA Home and Garden Show should your entry be built.
