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.

The Tulsa SPCA and the American Institute of Architects (AIA) joined forces to raise the roof on dog house and cat condo design, showing off the skills of our talented architects, builders and designers.

We then partnered with the Tulsa Regional STEM Alliance (TRSA), giving students to opportunity to make prototype dog houses and cat condos. The top school teams will be displayed with the AIA entries from November 2 – 18, 2018 at Woodland Hills Mall. The top three schools will win monetary awards of $1,000, $500, and $250 respectively.

While the dog houses and cat condos are on display at Woodland Hills Mall you will have the chance to vote for your favorite PAWsh Palace, as well as being placed in a raffle to win that design! Every $5 vote gives you the opportunity to win the dog house or cat condo of your furry friend’s dreams. Voting begins on November 2 and concludes at 3:00 P.M. on November 18. You can vote on site at Woodland Hills or online at www.tulsaspca.org.

The People’s Choice Award is based on the public’s voting, so be sure to get the word out to vote, vote, vote! The winning school for the STEM student prototype will also receive a prize.




Check back on November 2 for the AIA competitors and the STEM prototypes.
