Project H Design

Grant Awarded: $10,000

Project H uses the power of design and hands-on building to catalyze communities and public education from within. This grant is in support of its Studio H program, a one-year design/build public high school curriculum in rural Bertie County, North Carolina.

The goal is to build critical thinking, creative problem solving and industry-relevant construction skills within the next generation. One part design studio, one part shop class and one part community service, Studio H offers transferable college credit, elective high school credit and a summer salary. Last year Studio H participants designed and built an architectural pavilion for a farmers market. Current need is to promote the program by designing marketing materials, ranging from billboard signs, yearbook, postcards and the like.
