Design awards honor working students

Proving that returning students have the potential to become successful designers, six women won multiple awards in a statewide student contest sponsored by the Maryland American Society of Interior Designers.
The six students from the Anne Arundel Community College won a total of seven awards in the 2008 Chesapeake Home Design Competition.
They come from a variety of backgrounds - from nursing to Home Depot expertise center - but they all share a passion for interior design and a determination to make their mark in the industry.
"I decided to follow my dream to be an interior designer [and] AACC is famous in this field of study," says Marisa Wisor, originally from Thailand, who won an honorable mention in the category of Commercial Design for a children's candy store.
Her design features "a castle of sweets"- low- or sugar-free candy, berries and nuts, and Wisor sees it as a business idea that she hopes to market or franchise, according to hometownannapolis.com.
Founded in 1975, the American Society of Interior Designers is the oldest, largest and leading professional organization for interior designers.
