If you have a high-quality residential project that illustrates your best design work, submit it for consideration by the deadline. Read the Call for Entries for detailed information about eligibility, submission materials, selection process, and participation fees. 

All submitted projects will be reviewed by members of the AIA Minnesota residential architecture committee at their April 3 meeting.
