The ULI/Gerald D. Hines Student Urban Design Competition—now in its 11th year—is an urban design and development challenge for graduate students. The Hines Competition challenges multidisciplinary student teams to devise a comprehensive development program for a real, large-scale site. Teams of five students representing at least three disciplines have two weeks to develop solutions that include drawings, site plans, tables, and market-feasible financial data.
This is an ideas competition; there is no expectation that any of the submitted schemes will be applied to the site. The winning team will receive $50,000 and the finalist teams $10,000 each. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Congratulations to the 2013 Winners
A joint team of graduate students representing Kansas State University, the University of Missouri-Kansas City, and the University of Kansas earned the $50,000 top prize in the 2013 Gerald D. Hines Student Urban Design Competition. The team edged out other finalists with its proposed development plan for a Minneapolis site near the Minnesota Vikings Stadium.

Catching Up with Past Hines Competition Participants
More than 4,000 students have participated in the Hines Competition since its first year in 2003. We conducted a series of interviews with past Hines Competition finalists and winners about their experience competing and how both ULI and the competition have had an impact on their professional lives.
