Top 10 Finalists Announced In Stratasys Extreme Redesign Contest

Stocks in this article: SSYS

Stratasys Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS), a leading manufacturer of 3D printers and production systems for prototyping and manufacturing, today announced the finalists for its ninth annual Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge. The global contest encourages students to submit an innovative product design, a redesign of an existing product, or an original work of art or architecture.

As a new incentive this year, college category finalists will have their designs reviewed for a possible licensing agreement and commercialization by a major manufacturer in partnership with online inventor community, Edison Nation, which operates the hit TV show, Everyday Edisons.

The contest includes the categories of middle school and high school engineering, college engineering, and art & architecture. Besides being contenders for scholarship prize money, the top ten finalists in each of the three categories will receive a 3D printed model of their design. A list of the finalists and their school names can be found at: ER 2013 Finalists.

From the ten finalists in each category, a panel of independent judges from industry will select the winners. This year's judges are Patrick Gannon, RP+M division of Thogus, Todd Grimm, TAGrimm & Associates, and Ian Kovacevich, Enventys. Stratasys will award scholarships in the amount of $2,500 for first place winners and $1,000 for second and third place winners. Instructors of the three first-place student winners will receive a tablet PC for use in the classroom.

Designs are awarded based on creativity, usefulness, part integrity and aesthetics. Each submission is required to be a sound mechanical design; be realistic and achievable; and include a clear written description of the design.

This year’s contest also features the award category, “Engineering a Difference,” in which students compete for a bonus prize. Students whose designs are aimed at solving a great societal challenge will have a chance to win a $250 gift card.
