Big Ten Student Design Challenge 2018

Students of all majors are invited to compete in the Big Ten Student Design Challenge. Win $2000, network with industry professionals, and remake a space on your very own campus. Here’s how it works: each school has chosen an informal space to be re-furnished, and are now accepting designs from student teams. The best proposal from each school will be judged in a national competition, and the top 3 teams win a trip to Herman Miller headquarters. Over the course of two days, teams will refine their proposals with help from industry professionals and pitch their ideas to a panel of design experts. One winning team will receive a $2,000 cash prize and their proposal will be funded and built on their campus.

This competition is hosted by the Big Ten Academic Alliance in partnership with Herman Miller. Competing teams consist of 3-4 student members from participating Big Ten schools, and must submit their proposal by November 27th, 2018. Enter here:

Ava Wolf and Jamie Nelson from the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning are facilitating the Illinois portion of the contest. A informational was held with Karen Miller from Herman Miller on November 6th in the space on campus to be designed in the basement of the Foreign Language Building.
