Newburgh: Design For Play—An Ideas Competition

Newburgh: Design For Plan

An Ideas Competition

Deadline For Proposals: Monday, August 3, 2020

How can we reactivate the streets of Newburgh, New York so that children—you and old—can safely play, learn, socialize and have fun this summer, and beyond? With support from the City of Newburgh, we’re seeking your most innovative and creative ideas to activate Newburgh’s streets and bring ‘play’ safely outdoors.

Anyone can apply! Up to five winning entries will be chosen and awarded a design/build stipend of up to $2,000 to develop their ideas further and implement them in Newburgh.

We will publish many more ideas on the @designforsixfeet Instagram page and share them broadly to help cities across the U.S. and the globe in their efforts to safely reopen.

For more information and to apply please visit:
The ideas competition is a community effort co-organized by Design For Six Feet, the Awesome Newburgh Foundation, the City of Newburgh, Columbia GSAPP Hudson Valley Initiative, Dept of Small Interventions, the Fullerton Center, and the Newburgh Armory Unity Center. We would like to thank the Williams Legacy Foundation for providing key financial support to make this competition possible — and get Newburgh playing again!
