Corian® Solid Surface
Corian Quartz

Student Design Competition - Refresh DuPont™ Corian® Your Way
Grand Prize: Apple iPad

Our Local Competition Objective
Our objective for this competition is to refresh the DuPont™ Corian® name in the Washington State market. It is our hope to show designers, architects, and remodelers that DuPont™ Corian® can give that "creative edge" to any project.

Though it may not be known by all, DuPont™ Corian® has continually evolved since its advent in 1967 and – as the original solid surface material – continues to be a leader in being up on the latest trends. We would like to reinvent what Corian® is all about.

Express Your Creativity...
This is a great way for you as a designer to express your creativity using DuPont™ Corian®. No matter how Corian® inspires you, this is your chance to think outside the box and come up with something that expresses your skills – and yourself.

Advertising Your Work...
Making a name for yourself is the first step in achieving success in the design industry. This competition will allow you to show off your work in front of local designers as well as your industry peers. And, since Willis and DuPont™ want to showcase the hard work and dedication that you put into your design, we will be using and displaying your boards at events throughout the year. This is your time to shine!
