For the competition, students were challenged to design and construct a sustainable, healthy and resilient dog house for a 20-40 pound dog. Faculty, researchers and alumni judged the 16 participating doghouses based on eight criteria. Students, faculty and staff also voted on a "People's Choice" award.
