The 2021 Napkin Sketch Contest, Building Bridges, encouraged architects, students and related professionals to design a bridge in a 5-inch by 5-inch sketch. A panel of experts judged the sketches based on creativity and technical skill.

This was the second iteration of the annual Napkin Sketch Contest, with the 2020 contest featuring treehouse designs.

ALA is excited to continue this tradition, with a fresh focus for 2022. Details to be announced in the fall.
