On Saturday, November 9th, the San Francisco - Oakland office of Harley Ellis Devereaux participated in Leap’s 30th Annual Sandcastle Contest at Ocean Beach in San Francisco. Leap is a non-profit organization that provides quality art education programs in Bay Area elementary schools. The event brings together teams of architects, engineers, builders, and elementary schools to create sand sculptures based on the annual theme, while raising money to support Leap’s programs. Harley Ellis Devereaux teamed together with BN Builders and SF Community School for this year’s event. Prior to the contest, our team met with students in the classroom to develop ideas for this year’s theme “Masterpieces in Sand.” Our team enjoyed a fun filled day at the beach working together to re-create the Great Pyramid of Giza.
