As a leader in the field of educational facilities planning in the Association for Learning Environments Rocky Mountain Chapter Area, you are invited to participate in the annual Rocky Mountain Chapter Awards Program of School Planning, Architecture and Individual Achievement. It is a great opportunity to share your best planning experience or design of educational facilities with the rest of the community. We are also requesting submittals on individuals who have committed their career to K-12 school planning and/or design. The award ceremony will take place at the Chapter's Annual Holiday Party. All projects will be prominently displayed as part of an exhibition during the party. All projects will be reviewed prior to the party by a selected Jury representing all sides of school planning, design and construction and evaluated within three categories: new construction, renovation and un-built projects.
