Stage II and participate in a Site Master Plan Workshop. The finalists will
receive a $25,000 honorarium each to further develop their concept and
present it with additional drawings and a three-dimensional model. The Stage
II Jury will recommend a winning concept to the Flight 93 Advisory
Commission, which then presents the recommendation to the Secretary of the
Interior and to Congress.
The author of the winning submittal will be invited to negotiate a contract
with the National Pak Service for final design of the winning concept.
Both juries will be composed of distinguished professionals, family members,
and the public from local and international communities.
