In order to encourage and recognize excellence in landscape architecture and to demonstrate to the public the variety, scope and value of landscape architectural services, the Pennsylvania Delaware Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects hereby invites your participation in the 2020 PA–DE ASLA Awards Program.
The Awards Program is open to all PA and DE registered Landscape Architects, full and associate members of the Pennsylvania-Delaware Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, and faculty members currently teaching in PA and DE landscape architectural curriculum submitting work associated with their academic pursuits.

People’s Choice Program
The 2020 Professional Award Program will honor entrants with an entry to the People’s Choice Award Program. This award will be given to the top vote earner of all the award entries from ballots cast on site by those attending the 2020 PA-DE ASLA Conference. This award has no specific criteria. Its purpose is to recognize the project which most appeals to the participants of the Annual Meeting.
To be eligible for the “People’s Choice Award”, a 24″ x 36″ – Portrait Orientation (ARCH D) display board must be submitted as part of the awards program submissions. As part of the awards entry fee, the submitted poster will be plotted and exhibited at the conference.
