The Design and Architecture Senior High School (DASH) is interested in a different look, and school officials have announced that the individuals they intend to hire for the new design is their students.

DASH, which is located in Miami is known for graduating students who have been heavily recruited by architecture schools. For this project, seniors in the architecture and industrial design classes will work on their vision of what DASH should look like.

These individuals will create three-dimensional models and presentations to support their ideas, and will have a chance to win scholarships. Local philanthropists will be offering a $3,500 scholarship to each of the six students who score the highest, and $2,500 to each of the six students who receive honorable mention. In addition, the other 31 students who participate will be offered $1,000 each.

Before they commit to enter this field, prospective architecture students should be aware that they will be required to complete a five-year degree track. Related programs are very specialized, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
