Deadline for High School Design Competition Extended

Dear Friends,

The outbreak of Covid-19 (Coronavirus), which our country and the world have never been prepared for, has negatively affected our lives. We made some revisions in the portfolio content and delivery of our contest by taking into account the difficulties you experienced in this process, but without despair, taking advantage of the creative power of art and the meaning it adds to our lives. Remember that there are so many materials we can use in our habitats that we can only manage to see them. Let us free our thoughts. It’s like imagining a spoonful of flour is an iceberg…
