Welcome to the SMART Competition

In a world increasingly dependent on energy efficiency, material sustainability and redesign and reuse rather than new design, the SMART Competition invites high school students to become part of the solution.  By undertaking the project described in the competition’s problem statement, the students will have the opportunity to use professionally available design software while also having access to international experts who will support their efforts as mentors and sponsors.
Teams are comprised of 3-4 students and an educator sponsor.  Registration begins in October and ends in January.  Registered teams will then be given a deliverables schedule which will help them prepare for participation in the competition.

During the competition finals, the student teams will make their presentation using Internet based video technology.  All elements of the competition deliverables will be discussed by the teams with the panel of subject matter expert judges. Team presentations will be scheduled during April.
