The Illinois Drafting Educators Association, offers regional competitions in ten different categories ranging from regular board drafting, to 3D architectural drafting, and engineering design presentations. Zachary competed in the 2D Architectural CAD (Computer Aided Drafting) competition at the regional event, which has held in March at JJC where he won first place.
