AIA Sandcastle Competition

The AIA SandCastle Competition is a fundraising event for AIA Houston and the ArCH Foundation as well as one of the top five revenue-generating events for the city of Galveston. This year over 60 teams have their eyes and shovels set on winning the prestigious Golden Bucket Award. On the day of the event, the teams, stretched along the beach front, meticulously sculpt their piles of sand and work nonstop for five hours. At the end of the day, everyone goes home with memories of a great day at the beach filled with fun, sand, and sun.
