PAVE 2019 Student Design Competition

The Planning and Visual Education Partnership (PAVE) Student Design Competition, now in its 25th year, is open for entries for 2019.

The PAVE Student Design Competition promotes “real world” design experience for college-level students interested in pursuing careers in the retail design industry. Students involved in retail planning, visual merchandising, interior design and branding programs are encouraged to participate.

Prizes include grants to students and schools and winning students may even see their designs come to life.

This year’s challenge Bank of America invites you to create the ideal university on-campus free standing pop-up banking experience for students during the beginning stages of their financial journey.

This annual international competition is only open to college-level students involved in retail planning, design, visual merchandising, and branding programs. Consider this an invitation to reimagine the retail banking experience!

The competition is open to undergraduate students only.
