The Exhibition of Educational Environments, sponsored by the IASB Service Associates, is an annual competition for outstanding school design projects. The juried awards program recognizes school designs for instructional, recreational, administrative, or other use. Entries are accepted for the following categories:

  • New building
  • Major addition
  • Minor additions
  • Major renovation or adaptive reuse
  • Special project (historic preservation or sensitive rehab)
  • Special project (small projects under $4 million or single spaces

Architects, school board members, and administrators comprise the jury and review the entries on a blind basis. Projects nominated for the final exhibition are displayed each November at the Joint Annual Conference in Chicago. Designs selected for the exhibition are eligible for Award of Distinction, Award of Merit, or Honorable Mention honors.

Exhibits selected from previous contests can be viewed and accessed through IASB’s School Design Data File.
