Congratulations to all of our 2018 Newhouse winners! 617 Newhouse projects were on display at Robert Morris University’s State Street Gallery, and engaged over 1,000 students, 31 schools and 22 teachers.

The Newhouse Competition wouldn’t be possible without our six partner firms and 50 jurors. This group of local professionals represented 29 firms from across the Chicago area. On behalf of the students and teachers, we thank you for your time and feedback. Through your efforts, you’ve encouraged the Newhouse student competitors to think of design in new and different ways.
