An international design festival to create scholarships for high school students and help fund the high schools facilitating student creativity and sustainability
- Student Scholarships up to $5,250
- Additional awards to the winners' schools
- Renowned architects and designers from around the world invited to celebrate our youth's dreams
Now in its 3rd year, Juniors and Seniors from California high schools may compete in California Dream Week Scholarship Program between August 20, 2012 and March 20, 2013. Juniors and Seniors will submit their ideas on sustainability in three core areas: architecture & interior product design, transportation, product compliments/industrial design.
The winning student ideas will be shared with international designers from around the world who will be asked to celebrate the students' winning ideas in a series of graphic designs. The combined student/professional projects will be showcased during the California Dream Week Festival in Spring 2013, organized in downtown Chico, California - one of the nation's hot beds of sustainability.
Funds raised through Festival Passport sales and other promotional activities will be awarded to the high schools of the winning students.

More about the 2012 Festival: A series of stops within the city were organized to allow visitors to experience both the creativity of our youth and of professional designers from around the world. Visitors were drawn into an experience of festive give-aways from around the North State, as well as art events and benefit concerts to help spread the word. California residents, business owners, entrepreneurs, schools, non-profits all came together to make contributions great and small in support of this timely event.
The organizers of California Dream Week's second edition, The Worm Farm, are particularly pleased and thankful to the local and regional community that gave its support for this special event.
