Designing to Live Sustainably (D2LS)
You may have heard about the exciting and innovative design competition that is coming to Buffalo. The organizers are seeking sponsors and other partners at a variety of levels, to help accomplish the goal of bringing the competition to the City of Buffalo in the coming months.
The competition has two categories, an “Open” category, which is geared toward professionals and non-professionals alike, (all you need is a creative approach to sustainable thinking and design) and a “Scholastic” category, open to students and classrooms of all ages and capacity.
Winners in both categories will be based on creativity, an understanding of sustainability, and the impact of any particular project on one of the nine designated areas defined by the City of Buffalo Green Code.
This is expected to be the first in a series of competitions that will help the public and private sector create long term environmental, social, and economic benefits for the city of Buffalo and the region.
Organizers will accept online submissions for the 2012 competition starting January 28, 2012, with an exhibition, judging, and cash awards to occur in June.

Contest organizers are seeking sponsors in a variety of categories including individual donors, small businesses, and larger. Sponsors will be recognized in a variety of ways including on the website, in promotions and outreach literature, a show catalog, and at the exhibition in June. We anticipate a very healthy media response and presence in the weeks and months leading up to the event.
