(KSL News) -- University of Utah architecture students are aiding the design of a monument to the 2002 Winter Olympics, which will be located on the grounds of the State Capitol.

The caldron that burned each night at the downtown Medals Plaza will be its centerpiece.

Design competition guidelines say the monument should encompass the range of values, lessons and emotions that defined the Games, but it can't steal the limelight from the Capitol building itself.

Fifty teams of students from the College of Architecture and Planning are required to participate. The winning team splits a ten-thousand-dollar prize.
