What to Expect

Your participation at Craig M. Berge Design Day begins in the morning with check-in and breakfast. After a brief overview of the day’s events at the orientation meeting, you will meet the other industry professionals in your judging pod.

Your judging pod will then evaluate several assigned projects on their creativity, design quality, analysis and presentation. The results will help determine the students’ final grades. Once that is complete, your pod will shift over to award judging and will visit teams nominated for a Craig M. Berge Design Day award and narrow down to the finalists.

The award ceremony commences in the afternoon. You are invited to come see the smiles and cheers of our best students as they are rewarded for a year of hard work.

And don’t worry about parking difficulties; a space will be reserved for you!

Registration for judges for Craig M. Berge Design Day begins each March. If you would like be notified about participating as a judge, please fill out our interest form.
