What do Easter Seals and Google SketchUp have in common?  They are co-launching the first-of-its-kind online competition to design the perfect space for an autistic person.  It's called the Sketch-A-Space contest, and autistic persons, their family, friends, professionals, and even architects are welcome to compete!

The Sketch-A-Space goal is to make space more accessible to people with disabilities.  And if you can do that, you stand to win $2,000 and to give birth to ideas that will accomplish the contest's goals. 

The contest invites anyone with autism as well as other designers - amateur and professional - to submit a 3-D design that meets the needs of individuals with autism. Entrants share their ideas utilizing a unique Google Sites Entry Page, which shall include a Google SketchUp model, YouTube video(s), photograph(s) and a narrative.  The room shall be no larger than 200 square feet.

You must be at least 13 years old to enter. Read the other rules and find references to learn more about the needs of autistic persons, as well as design references here.

The competition closes on July 16, 2010, at 8:00 p.m. EDT.
