SCHRADERGROUP Co-sponsors CEFPI School of the Future Competition, Managing Principal Chairs Jury
SCHRADERGROUP (SG) was proud to be one of the sponsors of the CEFPI School of the Future Design Competition, an annual event open to middle school students that challenges student teams to design learning environments to enhance learning, conserve resources, be environmentally responsive and engage the surrounding community. The multi-disciplinary solution developed requires students to follow a planning process from the concept phase to completion of the project, with thorough documentation.
Over 3,000 students representing nearly 100 school districts in North America and the United Kingdom took part in the 2014 program, whose main sponsor is the Council of Educational Planners International (CEFPI).
SG Managing Partner, David Schrader, served as jury chair at this year’s event. “Chairing the jury affords me one of the best days of the year,” commented David. “Creating schools that inspire changes in education, empower students and engage the community, these young designers demonstrated great passion, enthusiasm, remarkable research and exceptional teamwork. Our future looks much brighter with them at the helm.”
A long-standing member of CEFPI, David presently serves as Chair-elect of the International Board of Directors for the organization. Former CEFPI posts include Chair of the International Membership Committee, Chair of the School of the Future Design Competition, and President of the Northeast Region.
