ASLA Utah 2019 Professional Awards Program

ASLA Utah 2019 Professional Awards Program – Complete!  Thank you to everyone who participated!

The Utah Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects is pleased to issue a formal call for entries for the 2019 ASLA Utah Awards Program.

Participation in the awards program helps to broaden professional boundaries, increase public awareness of the role of landscape architects, raise the standards of the discipline, and bring recognition to organizations and individuals who demonstrate superior skill in the practice or study of landscape architecture.

A jury of qualified out-of-state professionals will review professional and student award submittals and determine winners in each award category.

Winners in all award categories other than student work will receive their awards and be honored by having their work presented May 16th, 2019 at the Utah ASLA 2019 Annual Meeting in Pleasant Grove, Utah. Award-winning projects will be featured in upcoming ASLA chapter newsletters, on the ALSA Utah website, and could be used for displays promoting the profession.

Winners of student-submitted work will receive their awards during the Awards Banquet held by the USU LAEP Department on April 19, 2019.


Any individual, firm, or agency performing work within the state of Utah at the time the project was executed is eligible to enter. Projects that have received an award from previous Utah Chapter ASLA Awards Programs are not eligible for submittal. Projects previously entered that have not yet received awards may be resubmitted.
