    The annual Planning and Visual Education Partnership (PAVE) Student Design Competition, now in its 23rd year, is geared toward college-level students involved in retail planning, visual merchandising, and branding programs.

    PAVE 2017 invites participants to develop concepts that expand the platforms and expressions in which Chick-fil-A serves a college campus. Explore new ways of creating an experience that is more than just a transaction of food.

    Design expectations for this year's PAVE competition include:

    • Pushing the envelope of what the current experience is today
    • Shaping the future and capturing possibilities
    • Expanding the way Chick-fil-A engages their guests with a new portfolio of experiences
    • Providing powerful thought and design that is a collaboration or combination of design fields- architecture, interior design, visual merchandising and graphic design.

    Traditionally, the PAVE competition is divided into two groups; Store Design and Visual Merchandising. This year, they are integrating the disciplines into a single challenge and inviting students to consider the full spatial context and leverage their primary area of design interest and/or collaborate with other design disciplines.

    Entry teams of two students will be accepted as well as individual student entries. If a team of two is selected as a winner, both students will be recognised.

    There is no entry fee.
