Design in Public, a strategic initiative of AIA Seattle, has partnered with design firm DLR Group to bring the Redesigning the School Lunch Experience Design Ideas Competition. The Competition focuses on youth health in K-12 school environments and will generate ideas to transform the “school lunch” to better public health and wellness. It is open internationally to both individuals and teams, so all creative thinkers who are passionate about solving this problem are welcome to submit proposals.
Keep in mind that transforming the “school lunch” may not be only about menu. While the nutritional value of the food is critically important, remember that there are other factors contributing to a child’s lunch experience: social, intellectual physical, emotional, spatial…
Think freely and creatively. Analyze the problem. Identify the most important factors. Design your solution.
Multidisciplinary teams are strongly encouraged. Possibilities include designers, school district staff, educators, nutritionists, architects, engineers, medical professionals, parents, or students.
The 1st place winning proposal will be awarded with $4,000! An award will also be provided for the second best proposal and up to four (4) honorable mentions will be announced.
