Garner-Hayfield-Ventura high school wins architecture competition

CLEAR LAKE, Iowa - Six North Iowa schools participated in WWA Architects' third annual Student Collaborative Design Competition at the Surf Ballroom.

Students were tasked with designing a space to house a school-based and operated business such as a coffee shop or cafe, with each presentation consisting of a written proposal, space and site plans, and a model.

Garner-Hayfield-Ventura won the contest and were awarded a $1,000 check, while Osage, who won the last two years, was the runner-up and awarded $500, and Charles City took third place and were awarded $250.

GHV junior Stephen Phillips says that him and his teammates put a lot of time and energy into the design, and are proud of the final product, even spending some of their Spring Break working on it.

"It was definitely a challenge to try to get school work balanced with this. Plus, I also work at Bennigan's [in Clear Lake], so this was fun having all of this going on. But I'm happy with what we came up with," Phillips says.

After high school, Phillips plans to pursue a major in architecture or engineering.

Senior Deserae Clevenger has only participated in this year's competition, but has been taking architecture courses in school, and taking part in the competition will help shape her future plans.

"You don't see a lot of girls around here. And I realized I wanted to actually become an administerial technology teacher because I really like these type of programs and interior design. I thought that was something that I could also connect with for future career plans," Clevenger says.
