Future Landscape Architects of America (FLAA) Launches 2018 Curriculum Challenge

How would you share landscape architecture with K-12 students?  Future Landscape Architects of America (FLAA), a nonprofit organization, has officially launched its 2018 Curriculum Challenge.  This inaugural competition is the brainchild of FLAA Founder Nicole Plunkett and FLAA Curriculum Chair Erin Porter, both landscape architects in Jupiter, Florida at Cotleur & Hearing.  With the assistance of many volunteers and ideas, the 2018 Curriculum Challenge encourages participants to develop a teachable lesson plan which can be shared with professionals, volunteers, educators, teachers, and students world-wide.  FLAA is asking participants to be innovative, diverse, and creative because there are so many ways to answer the question, “What is a landscape architect?”

While FLAA is a relatively new organization, it has been making big strides since its conception in 2015.  Within the past three years, 14 different schools and organizations have teamed up with FLAA to introduce landscape architecture to over 1,000 students, ranging from kindergarten to 12th-grade throughout the state of Florida.  Seeing the immense positive response from educators and parents, FLAA is working to expand its reach nationwide. 

The 2018 Curriculum Challenge is open to professionals and students, there is no fee to submit, individuals and teams are allowed, and the winners will be determined by selection jury comprised of landscape architecture professionals and educators from various grade levels and backgrounds.  Winning lesson plans will be included within the first FLAA curriculum launch this fall.  Winning professionals will receive recognition through multiple press releases.  Winning students will have a special opportunity to obtain one of three $500 Curriculum Challenge Award of Excellence Scholarships sponsored by Anova Furnishings

Take part in a groundbreaking opportunity to create a lesson plan with FLAA through the 2018 Curriculum Challenge.
