Dallas — Daltile and the ASID Foundation announced the panel of judges for the third Daltile Interior Design Scholarship, presented by the ASID Foundation. From interior designers to industry experts, this year’s judges will determine some of the best and brightest young professionals that the future of interior design has to offer.
This year’s scholarship competition, Operation Renovation, challenges students to find a residential or commercial space in need of renovation and then create a redesign to meet the needs of its users. Through April 9, students are required to promote themselves and rally votes for their design. The general public is also invited to visit the scholarship website and vote for their favorite entry. The best designs with the most votes will move on to final judging.
Entries will be judged on the space’s functional design, aesthetic design and creative use of Daltile’s newest product offerings by the following panel of industry experts: Charrisse Johnston, ASID, LEED AP BD+C, Assoc., AIA; Lori Kirk-Rolley, vice president, brand marketing, Dal-Tile; Barbara Marini, FASID, IDEC; Erika Templeton, editorial director, Interiors & Sources magazine; Kia Weatherspoon, Allied ASID, president of Determined by Design.
The grand-prize winner will receive a $10,000 scholarship, and will be announced at NeoCon 2014. Winners of the first, second and third prizes each will receive a $2,500 scholarship, and 10 Merit Winners will each receive a $1,000 scholarship.
