Jury Selects Village Tower

The Winnipeg Folk Festival Village Tower was selected for the Jury’s Choice Wood Design Award at the annual Prairie Wood Design Awards presented by Wood WORKS! Alberta. Glen Manning, the principal designer on the project accepted the award at the gala in Edmonton on Tuesday, March 17, 2015.  The Jury’s Choice Award is carefully selected by the Jury and is presented to a project the Jury feels stands out among the exceptional nominees.

This is the second Prairie Wood Design Award for a Winnipeg Folk Festival project.
