Dallas — Daltile, in conjunction with the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Foundation, has announced Jessica Sapinoso as the winner of the third annual Daltile Interior Design Scholarship. As the grand-prize winner of the competition, Sapinoso was presented with a $10,000 scholarship at NeoCon 2014 to continue her education in the field of interior design.

Sapinoso’s winning design was on display at NeoCon 2014, where she was present as Daltile’s guest of honor. First-, second- and third-prize winners each received a $2,500 scholarship, and 10 merit winners received a $1,000 scholarship each, for a total of $27,500 in scholarships awarded, according to Daltile.

“On behalf of Daltile and the ASID Foundation, we congratulate Jessica Sapinoso on winning the Daltile Interior Design Scholarship,” said Lori Kirk-Rolley, vice president, brand marketing, Dal-Tile Corp. “Once again, students from around the country rose up to our design challenge, demonstrating that the future of interior design is bright indeed. We feel confident that Jessica, the runners up and merit winners, are once again shining examples of what the next generation of interior designers has to offer.”

This year’s design challenge, titled Operation Renovation, was to transform an outdated space in dire need of a renovation. Renovations and remodels are common in today’s marketplace, and Daltile sought to provide students with a real-world design experience. Entries were judged on the space’s function, aesthetic and creative use of Daltile’s newest product offerings to bring each student’s vision to life.

“The ASID Foundation is proud to participate with Daltile in awarding scholarships to Jessica Sapinoso and these other worthy young designers,” said Randy Fiser, executive vice president and CEO, ASID. “Education and scholarships are prime objectives of the ASID Foundation, and the Daltile Interior Design Scholarship program enables us to address both while leveraging a valued partnership.”
