Daltile Holding Student Design Competition

Dallas, TX, Dec. 19, 2013 -- The Daltile Interior Design Scholarship, presented by the ASID Foundation, returns for the third year.

In this year’s design challenge, titled Operation Renovation, students studying interior design will compete for more than $25,000 in scholarships, with the grand prize winner receiving a $10,000 scholarship.

Operation Renovation challenges students to create a high-functioning environment for an existing space, solving design problems and providing creative solutions to address the needs of the current occupants.

Through this challenge, students are asked to maximize the possibilities in an existing structure, exploring the true purpose of the space as well as the needs of all who use it.

The competition requires student participants to find a residential or commercial space in need of renovation and then create a redesign to meet the needs of its users.

Once students have selected a space, they must identify the current issues in the space and explore what changes are needed to make the space both beautiful and high functioning. Entries will be judged on the space’s functional design, aesthetic design and creative use of Daltile’s newest product offerings.

The competition begins Jan. 1 and will run through March 15.

The grand-prize winner will be announced at NeoCon.
