Urban SOS

While at CELA I heard a fair amount about the difficulty for students to find jobs and summer internships. Making the most of the unfilled time is important. AECOM is holding a student design competition that could help. The Urban SOS program offers a $20,000 prize for site redevelopment proposals in Phoenix, Arizona, United States; Jeddah, Saudi Arabia; Beijing, China; Port au Prince, Haiti; Istanbul, Turkey; São Paulo, Brazil; Johannesburg, South Africa. I suspect that Port au Prince will be a popular site.
