The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) is seeking proposals for an exhibit highlighting student planning projects at its 50th Anniversary Regional Conference & General Assembly, May 7 - 8 at the JW Marriott Desert Springs in Palm Desert. As part of the agency’s regular event programming that will highlight outstanding planning projects in the region, SCAG will host its first student project exhibit of exceptional projects in the discipline of urban and regional planning. Selected students will have the opportunity to showcase their projects on Thursday, May 7th to an audience of more than 1,000 elected officials, planning practitioners and various public, private and non-profit stakeholders.

  • Innovation: Introduces new concept or challenges or improves upon current planning processes
  • Transferability: Strategies/concepts that can be applied to different locations or programs
  • Feasibility: Project has potential to be realistically implemented
  • Presentation: Excellence in writing, visual content and overall organization
