Blue Sky Award [Alberta]
The Blue Sky Award, started in 2011, invites non-profit organizations in Alberta to compete for an annual award of pro-bono Architectural services, to enable them to move towards realizing the projects of their dreams. Whether it be a new facility, a renovation of an existing building, or a master plan or feasibility study, we provide $10,000 of design services to the winning submission.
Over the years, we've connected with many excellent non-profits, championing a broad range of worthy causes. Some years, mulitiple runners-up were chosen, after our jury couldn't choose only one winner.
Our Blue Sky winners include:
- 2011: CASA (Child, Adolescent and Family Mental Health) (Runners-up: Vecova, Artists' Urban Village)
- 2012: Canadian Paraplegic Association (Alberta) (Runners-up: Alice B. Donahue Library & Archives, Red Deer Native Friendship Society)
