The annual Invitational Exhibition of Educational Environments (EEE), sponsored by the IASB Service Associates, is accepting nominations for outstanding school design projects until July 12. Completed forms and associated fees for each project must be received in the IASB Springfield office by the deadline. Additional preliminary materials for each project are due by August 30.

The juried awards program will recognize school designs for instructional, recreational, administrative, or other use. All projects submitted for the Exhibition of Education Environments must be completed in time for the start of school in the fall of 2021. School design entries will be 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)
  •     Special project (engineering solutions)
Judging will take place on September 16. After judging, entrants will be notified by email whether their project has been selected for display at the exhibition. Entry fees will be refunded for those not selected for the final display.

School designs selected for the Exhibition will be eligible for Award of Distinction, Award of Merit, or Honorable Mention honors. The Exhibition display will be featured at the 2021 Joint Annual Conference in Chicago this November.
