ARCHIVE Still time to enter our student competitions
THIS COMPETITION IS CLOSED
 Great opportunity for student architects and student engineers
Student architects can win £500 from Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and student engineers can win an internship with Buro Happold. The two winners will also be invited to write a blog about themselves for the Designing Buildings Wiki home page. Five runners-up from each competition will receive commendations and will be featured on the home page, and all suitable entries will be added to the site.
Now how would that look on your CV?
You can enter an essay you wrote for something else – maybe a piece of coursework - as long as it meets our rules and hasn’t been published anywhere else.
So what are you waiting for?
Competitions close: 5pm Friday 14th December 2012.
