The winners are out for the International Housewares Association’s Student Design Competition. The competition, now in its 17th year, challenges college-level design students to redesign a current housewares product.  This year, the award for first place, $5,000, will be split by two student winners who tied in the top tier for their innovative and original designs.  Teddy Lu, a senior at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, placed first for his design of TubTub, a multi-functional bath tub that accommodates a newborn baby.  The second first place winner, Trevis Kurz of Ohio State University, won for his design of the Sanas Smoke Alarm. In addition to the first place category, there are winners in second place, third place, and honorable mention categories. Want to meet these rising stars? Student winners will be present at the 2010 International Home + Housewares Show, in Chicago March 14-16.
