Sketch-A-Space Competition

Easter Seals and Google SketchUp have teamed up to launch this first-of-its-kind online competition. The Easter Seals’ Sketch-A-Space competition offers people with autism – and those interested in learning more about autism or who have someone in their life that lives with autism – an opportunity to design their ideal, dream space using Google SketchUp’s free 3-D modeling software.

Design the room or space of your dreams – for a chance to win $2,000 to make that dream space come true. Join Sketch-A-Space in helping to make spaces more accessible to people living with autism!


Design the room or space of your dreams.

There are four competition categories:

  1. Youth with Autism: individuals with autism age 13-17
  2. Adult with Autism: individuals with autism age 18 and over
  3. Youth: individuals without autism age 13-17
  4. Adult: individuals without autism age 18 and over


Of the four (4) contest Finalists selected, three (3) will win $1,000 in the form of a check or gift card to the winner’s choice of a home design/home improvement store.

One (1) grand prize winner will be selected from the finalists and will receive $2,000 in the form of a check or gift card to the winner’s choice of a home design/home improvement store.
