Stratasys has announced the opening of its 2014 Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge. Now in its tenth year, the contest invites students worldwide to submit new product designs, redesigns of existing products, or original or redesigned works of art or architecture created on 3D CAD software. Students at the middle school, high school and college level are eligible to participate, and the winning submissions are awarded with scholarship money.

The challenge includes four categories—middle school, high school and college engineering, and art & architecture—as well as a bonus award category for designs related to “extreme sports.” Winning designs are chosen based on creativity, usefulness, part integrity and aesthetics.

“The Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge not only offers students a chance to win scholarship money by putting their creativity and critical thinking skills to the test,” says Jon Cobb, executive vice president of marketing, “but it gives the rest of us a glimpse of the exciting possibilities coming from this future generation of inventors, designers and entrepreneurs.”
