Overview of AS&U Design Competitions

Often imitated, never equaled, AS&U's annual August Educational Interiors Showcase and November Architectural Portfolio issues feature hundreds of outstanding education facilities and are the industry's leading idea-books for education design and construction.

Since 1983, American School & University magazine has hosted the premier competitions for education design projects.

School administrators and others interested in educational facilities look to the August Educational Interiors Showcase issue and the November Architectural Portfolio as guides to award-winning ideas and innovations for America's schools and universities.
