The General Services Administration has launched a competition for students in architecture and design programs to create a federal workspace that eliminates barriers to achieving an all-inclusive experience.
The Access for All design competition invites students to integrate universal design ideas into government facilities to advance accessibility and enhance inclusivity for federal employees and the general public, GSA said Tuesday.
Through the competition, the GSA Office of Design and Construction aims to encourage equal opportunities for all communities in support of the Biden administration’s goal to promote diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility in the federal workforce.
“The Access for All Challenge.Gov competition is part of an ongoing effort to generate new ideas about how we address universal design and accessibility issues in federal facilities and provide positive examples of what is achievable,” commented Nina Albert, commissioner of the Public Buildings Service at GSA.
Open until May 2, 2023, the challenge offers $4,500 in total cash prizes.
