“Sherwin-Williams is proud to encourage excellence among the future leaders of the interior design industry,” said Sue Wadden, director of color marketing for Sherwin-Williams. “The Student Design Challenge provides students a unique opportunity to showcase their work to top designers and celebrates their creativity.”

Wadden is one of the contest judges, and is joined by Nancy Fire (co-founder and creative director of Design Works International and design director of HGTV Home) and Vanessa Deleon (owner of Vanessa Deleon Associates).

Original residential or commercial design projects can be submitted online free of charge, and separate submissions are accepted for each category. Students can enter either individually or as a team of up to three.

The top winner from each category will receive a $2,500, and their design school will receive $1,000. Second-place winners will win $1,000 and third-place winners will win $500.

Submissions are due March 15.
