The winning design will be featured on the cover of the 2018 Parade of Homes Guidebook, and the student designer will receive a $500 scholarship to the College or Trade School of their choice.


Students are asked to design a cover design that commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the event. Creative and innovative ideas are encouraged.


“We are proud of our long history of showcasing new and remodeled homes along the lakeshore, and thought that a design contest would be a great way to involve the community,” shared Executive Officer Sue Schurman. “Since students are the future of the residential building industry, why not involve them in our anniversary.”
