Who are the other two jurors? One is MakeDC, and the other is YOU. That’s right: The public has a place at the judges’ table! Everyone who attends can vote towards the People’s Choice award, and that vote will count in the final deliberation.
Thanks for reading — and for your support in helping to MakeDC a better city. We’ll see you at the District Architecture Center this Saturday!
