Announcement 1: 11/10/2020

Hi Teams, due to the nature of the restrictions imposed by COVID-19, the competition will be held virtually this year. More information for the SDC 2021 Format can be found in an official letter here:

Summary for SDC 2021 Format

The competition format represents a completely virtual competition enabling students to participate and engage from their respective locations of residence. The competition will consist of four stages/progressions, each of which will require participating teams to submit deliverables that will be counted towards the competition’s conclusion. Each of the four assignments will be released separately and due on distinct dates throughout the academic year, replacing the need for the previous design proposal submission. Scoring details for each section will be described in detail along with the release of section rules and guidelines. Teams will be invited to participate in the competition based on their 2021 SDC Interest Forms. The team captains as indicated in the interest survey would be the future point of contact between the SLC and the participating teams.

If your school is interested in participating, please fill out this Interest Survey by Monday, November 23, 2020.
