Summary of Contest:

Design it Digital is a fun new online student design competition. Students are presented with three hypothetical scenarios in which a client is asking for a specific custom piece of furniture. Students can choose their favorite client project and design a solution using CAD and rendering software. This contest introduces students to challenges that designers face when making a custom piece of furniture. It also highlights the use of CAD software in our industry and provides an opportunity for AWFS® member companies to get involved with students and schools. Our focus is to engage young people into thinking about the many career opportunities available in the wood industry.
