ASID Carolinas Otto Zenke Student Design Competition

Each year, this competition asks students to design an awe-inspiring project based on certain criteria for the judges to consider. This award gives both scholars and their programs the opportunity to showcase their creativity, professionalism and the chance to win scholarship money along with recognition throughout the Carolinas.

The judges were asked to score each entry based on codes, accessibility, concept, life safety, egress, space planning and programming. Based on these criteria the winners of the 2018-19 Otto Zenke awards are:

  • Carly Lawing -- FIRST PLACE & $1,000
