TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) and the Florida Association of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Florida) today encouraged the public to vote for their favorite video in a public service contest for architecture students throughout the state. The contest, which offers cash prizes to the best videos about unlicensed architecture, engages the student community in an issue that not only directly impacts their profession but that can also pose a danger to consumers.
Public voting is available online at https://www.research.net/s/CPSZFXT and is limited to one vote per IP address. The public may cast their vote through midnight on March 14, 2013. Teams are also encouraged to share the voting link with as many people as possible.
The top three videos that receive the most votes will be announced after the votes are tabulated in March. The team that wins first place will receive a grand prize of $500. The runners up will receive $250 each. More information regarding the contest is available online at www.myfloridalicense.com/studentPSAcontest.
