Student Design Awards (CLOSED)
At the event, student participants will be given a design challenge (inspired by the Iron Chef America show’s “secret ingredient” cooking competition). Only at the event will the event sponsor reveal the product for the students to design, along with the concept and criteria involved.
Students will be broken into small teams and will have 1.5 hours to complete the competition, including two “advice breaks” with Mentors (industry professionals) where feedback is given on their team’s design. Before awarding a winning team, each student group is allotted five minutes to present their final designs to a panel of esteemed judges from the industrial design and interior design community.
