Cookie Construction 2019
AIA Kansas City and its committee, Women in Design, and Girls Scouts of NE Kansas & NW Missouri are excited to bring Cookie Construction for its fifth year to area Girl Scouts. Girl Scouts will work in teams with female professionals from the design industry, over six months, to create structures out of Girl Scout Cookie boxes culminating with a build day in March.
New this year, early bird registration! Register prior to July 1 and save 15% off the registration fee. Space is limited. There will be at max of 5 Kansas City based teams, one Topeka based team and one St. Joseph based team. Spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. See registration information below.
