PAVE Student Design Competition Deadline
Nov 1 all-day

PAVE (Planning And Visual Education) is offering a FREE opportunity for students to participate in our annual Student Design Competition, where students will have the chance to gain real world retail design experience, win cash prizes, and receive recognition in New York at our annual Gala event.

This annual international competition is only open to college-level students involved in retail planning, design, visual merchandising, and branding programs.

For the DIY new homeowner or even the seasoned Pro contractor, home improvement projects can be exciting and exhilarating. But getting the right tools, the right materials and the right know-how can make home improvement projects daunting as well.

The 2018 PAVE Design Challenge invites you to rethink and reinvent how The Home Depot stores can give customers the know-how they need to tackle all their home improvement projects with confidence. As a company, we challenge ourselves to bring fresh thinking and customer-centric innovation every day.

For this challenge we encourage you to:

Set the standard for others to follow

Architecture, Interior Design, Visual Merchandising and Graphic Design

To create a one-of-a-kind in-store environment

We highly encourage you to push the envelope of your thinking and improve home improvement.

Prizes include grants to students and schools and winning students may even see their designs come to life. The competition is open to undergraduate students only. Submission deadline is November 1, 2018.  The PAVE Gala is on December 5, 2018, in New York City.

Prizes Included:
First Place – $8,000
Second Place – $5,500
Third Place – $3,000
Honorable Mention – $1,000

*Winners will also receive a travel stipend to be honored at the 2018 PAVE Gala on December 5, 2018, in New York City.
**Prizes awarded to teams of two will be split between both team members.
