For 72 years the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Central Connecticut has held a Student Home Design contest as part of the Connecticut Home & Remodeling Show. Starting in 1948, the Student Home Design Competition allows students from all Connecticut high schools the opportunity to demonstrate their creative and technical skills and to be recognized for their talents. Additionally, they are provided with the opportunity to win scholarships and awards.
The Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Central Connecticut sponsors the Student Home Design Competition for students in grades 10 – 12 that are enrolled in design or drafting courses in public and technical high schools across the state.
Each student must include a scale model home with presentation drawings that meet specific criteria. This year’s criteria are to design a three bedroom home not to exceed 2,000 square feet of floor space and the students must include three National Association of Home Builders Model Green Building Guidelines.
