2013 1st place State: Michael Zimmer of Elgin High School

Comments from the Judges:

Michael showed a great understanding of the existing building and showed that he did his research.

He had a creative approach and a well thought out presentation.

While it certainly wasn’t required, Michael did an amazing job at thinking beyond the existing and envisioning the potential of an effective learning environment.
