Some comments from the jury:

The jury very much appreciated the chance to get to know these candidates. All four were exceptionally strong candidates, in many ways perhaps the most goal-driven and articulate we have seen. Self-awareness and motivation were clear in each student. And, for the first time we remember, all four have jobs lined up after graduation. We had to make very difficult decisions and had a great deal of discussion in doing so - as we believe all four will make strong contributions to our profession and represent our field well.

The jury also commented that there was an increased focus on design/build projects, as well as urban projects with an integration of ecology.

Job Well Done!
