on Friday,March 12,2010 21:03
To help interior design students showcase their ability to combine style and sustainability, Ward's Automotive Group has launched its first Interiors Student Design Competition.
In partnership with the College for Creative Studies, the Michigan-based automotive news provider will challenge students to create a vehicle interior that will suit the needs of an eco-friendly family living in the year 2020.
All entries will be displayed at the Ward's Automotive Group booth at the SAE World Congress in April. As a result, contest participants will have the opportunity to showcase their work to an international audience.
Finalists will be announced at the event and be honored at the Ward's Auto Interiors Conference in May, where the grand prize winner will be announced. Special awards from International Automotive Components and Lear Corporation - the competition's sponsors - will also be disbursed.
Drew Winter, editor-in-chief of Ward's AutoWorld magazine, said that the contest was launched because "the vehicle interior is more important than ever to busy families who expect their cars and trucks to not just transport them from point A to point B, but become part of their lifestyle."
