Set Design Contest

To recognize the talents of high school techies and reward their excellence in the area of scenic design, the METG will award prizes to high school students in grades 9-12 based on talent demonstrated in a set design presentation. Since its inception in 1992, the METG has awarded $77,900 to 129  students.

The applicant will select a scene from a published play of his or her choosing and design a set for that choice. The applicant’s design concept must be original and its rendering must be exclusively his or her own work. Judging will be based on the quality of the design’s concept and execution and its appropriateness to the selected play.

Design applicants will present their entries in person on the day of the contest competition. Judges will interview design applicants

Recognizing that good set design takes careful thought and detailed preparation, applicants are advised to apply well in advance of the November 1 deadline.
