A competition is being held to gather ideas for the future use of the New York State Pavilion.

The New York State Pavilion has been off limits to the Queens community for decades, but some organizations are asking for public input on how to make it a bustling public space once again.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation, People for the Pavilion and Queens Borough President Melinda Katz have announced the International Ideas Competition, a contest to encourage people to “radically re-imagine” the pavilion’s future use, according to the website.

The competition is open to anyone over 13 and there is no fee to participate. Designs can be submitted in two ways ― in PDF format through the competition website or through several events that will be hosted in the borough starting this month.

Jackson Heights-based group Hibridos Collective will host the People’s Tent of Tomorrow, a pop-up tent where people can present their ideas. Participants can represent their ideas by drawing, sketching, doodling or other forms of design. An art educator will be present to help with designs.

RPGA Studio, a nonprofit art studio, will use its 3-D printer to help people’s designs come to life. Studio staff will work with participants to create 2-D or 3-D models at their Long Island City location.

The deadline to submit ideas is July 1. For a full list of rules and dates and times for each public event, click here.
