Discover how Durkan and NEWH have partnered together through the dscvr Student Design Competition to help shape the future of hospitality design by identifying and cultivating the next generation of talent. Meg Turner, 2017 grand prize winner, shares how the contest opened her eyes to a career path she hadn't previously considered and led to a job offer as a Durkan field designer.

The Durkan dscvr19 design competition has been established to exhibit the talent of designers in the hospitality design field and contribute toward the education of future designers, in partnership with NEWH. Students submit concepts for flooring in standard ballroom and pre-function settings that are created as separate components but coordinate with one another. Submissions are reviewed by a panel of Durkan associates and judged based on concept, presentation and market feasibility.
