May 5 - 7, 2006 (Pomona, CA) - Pick your favorite project at the 3rd Annual Student Design Competition, sponsored by The Woodworking Shows and FESTOOL.
6 HIGH SCHOOLS - 57 PROJECTS
Introduced in 2004, The Student Design Competition continues to recognize and reward Southern California High School students for their woodworking accomplishments. Integrating multiple critical skills, Woodworking requires proficiency in mathematics and geometry, the ability to read and follow project plans and instructions, as well as manual dexterity and the ability to use machinery. As schools in the area struggle to keep shop and woodworking programs in the curriculum, this competition provides exposure for the art and science of woodworking and offers a public platform to showcase participating students' creativity and skill, while encouraging communities to focus attention on the importance of maintaining such programs.
Participation in this year's competition more than quadrupled from last year. Students representing San Jacinto, El Camino Real, Corona, Norco, San Gorgonio, and
Brethren Christian High Schools submitted projects to be judged.
The students' projects will be judged by an expert panel in the areas of design, level
of project complexity, quality of construction, and finish. First, second and third prizes in three juried categories, as well as a prize for the "People’s Choice" category, will be awarded. All students submitting completed projects are eligible to win prize packages generously donated by show exhibitors and sponsors. A gallery area displaying the projects will be featured at The Woodworking Shows throughout the course of the event.
