Two bonus award categories in which students may compete for $250.
The first bonus category asks students to create a fresh design twist
on an existing building or bridge. The second bonus category challenges
students to create an intriguing puzzle or game.
Everyone who enters the contest will receive an official Extreme Redesign T-shirt, courtesy of Dimension 3D Printers. If the free t-shirt is not enough alone to make it worth your while, take a look at last years winners to see you may be in with a good chance.
The instructor of the first place winning entry from each category will also get a little love in the shape of a laptop computer, courtesy of Dimension 3D Printers.
