WHAT IS PAWSH PALACES?  The PAWsh Palaces competition is a partnership between the Tulsa SPCA, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and STEM programs in Tulsa area schools. This event celebrates great design, the education of students and pet adoption through the Tulsa SPCA.

HOW DOES IT WORK? PAWsh Palaces is a three-part event kicking off in July 2018 and concluding in early 2019.

Part 1: The Tulsa SPCA and the American Institute of Architects (AIA) have joined forces to raise the roof on dog house and cat condo design showing off the skills of our talented architects, builders and designers. Team registrations and $100 entry fees are due by July 13. Click here for rules and regulations.

Part 2: This fall, the Tulsa SPCA and AIA will partner with STEM programs in local schools where students will make prototype dog houses and cat condos. The top teams will be displayed with the AIA entrants November 2-16 at a location to be announced soon. Check back for more information.

Voting by the public begins November 3! A $5 ticket gives you, the public, the chance to vote for your favorite PAWsh Palace as well as the chance to win that design! Voting begins on November 3 and ends at midnight on November 15. The People’s Choice Award will be based on public votes. The winning school of the STEM student prototype will also receive a prize.
