The CAD/Design/Drafting (CDD) Competition is a contest designed to provide recognition to high school students for creative design, successful problem solving and craftsmanship in preparing architectural drawings. Objectives of the contest are to introduce the student to the construction industry in a positive and challenging manner, while fostering a sense of self-worth and building confidence. Entries are evaluated for detail, accuracy and originality of work.  Local winners move on to regional and national competition with prizes awarded at each level.
