A local design contest recently enabled one architecture student to gain recognition and financial aid, both of which could help him launch a new career.

Students at Southern Utah University created original designs for a new office building in the school's town of Rockville, The Spectrum and Daily News reports. From these submissions, city officials selected Joseph Palmer's blueprints for the new structure.

The competition was intended to give students the opportunity to gain exposure and help the town obtain a grant for the new building without spending tax dollars on expensive architectural services, according to the media outlet.

For his submission, Palmer received recognition from Rockville's mayor and other city officials. In addition, the town gave him a $750 scholarship to help him cover the cost of tuition for his remaining time at the university.

In the future, Palmer plans to enroll in graduate school to pursue a career in architecture, according to the news source.

The student's career prospects will most likely be favorable after he finishes school, as the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the demand for architects is expected to increase by 16 percent in the next eight years.
