There are two weeks left to partner with a school in your community and register for the 2009 Open Architecture Challenge. Registrations are due by May 4th and entries must be submitted by June 1st.

10 million children lack safe and secure classrooms to learn. Schools from Aspen, Colorado to Mumbai, India to Kabul, Afghanistan have signed up for this unique initiative. This challenge is open anyone, all you need is a idea and a way to get it to us. A number of student led teams are not only showing their teachers a thing or two about creating the classroom for their future but are designing classrooms for children around the world through our building partners, like Orient Global/Rumi Schools of Excellence (India) and Building Tommorrow (Uganda).
