UGA’s House the Herd Student Design Challenge to announce winners Feb. 13

The winners of the House the Herd Student Design Challenge will be announced Feb. 13 at 5:30 p.m. in the Jackson Street Building, 285 S. Jackson St. The event, which will be catered, is open free to the public.

Over the past three months, 52 UGA students on a total of 13 teams were tasked with designing a temporary shelter to house at least 12 Chew Crew goats at Driftmier Woods, a patch of forest on the Athens campus that is overrun by invasive shrubs and vines.

Their designs will be judged on practicality, environmental impact and innovation. The winning team will be awarded $1,000. The second- and third-place teams will receive $500 and $250, respectively.

Designs created by Barrow Elementary School students also will be on display.

Project implementation will begin in late February.
