ATLANTA - Vero Software will donate a seat of its design-to-manufacturing Cabinet Vision woodworking solution to each of the top three winners of the AWFS Design It Digital Contest, a new online contest designed to teach students about careers in the woodworking industry.
Presented by AWFS, the Association of Woodworking & Furnishings Suppliers, the competition was designed for middle school, high school, and post-secondary students enrolled in accredited North American wood-industry programs. To participate, students chose one of three hypothetical client projects with which they were presented, and designed their preferred project using any computer-aided-design (CAD) software.
Both educational and community driven, the contest was a catalyst for interaction between AWFS-member companies, schools and students. Added benefits were the opportunity to introduce students to the variety of real-life challenges faced by designers, and to encourage them to consider the range of career opportunities available to them in the woodworking industry.
Design It Digital winners have been selected via an online voting system and an award announcement for the contest will take place at 10 a.m. on Aug. 22 at the IWF trade event in the AWFS Booth, No. 2375.
