Easter Seals and Google SketchUp have teamed up to launch this first-of-its-kind online competition. The Easter Seals’ Sketch-A-Space competition offers people with autism — and those interested in learning more about autism or who have someone in their life that lives with autism — an opportunity to design their ideal, dream space using Google SketchUp’s free 3-D modeling software.
Design the room or space of your dreams — for a chance to win $2,000 to make that dream space come true. Join us in helping to make spaces more accessible to people living with autism!
The Sketch-A-Space Contest requires you to (STEP 1) create your space in a Google Site Template, and (STEP 2) submit your entry using our Easter Seals Submission Page. To get started, you will first work in the Google Site Template to create your space and save your work as your own unique Google Site. You must name and save your entry page. This template will become your final submission, showcasing your completed space with a required video, pictures, and description of your space. Be creative! Your entry page will have a unique URL that you will use for your competition entry on Easter Seals’ Submission Page. Make sure to read all of the competition rules before submitting your entry.
