THIRD LEVEL STUDENT WOOD AWARDS 2017
This year’s Third Level Student Wood Awards failed to receive sufficient sponsorship to ensure a quality competition. We are currently revising this event in consultation with stakeholders and potential sponsors with a view to securing its future and relaunching the event. Comments from colleges and WMF members appreciated (firstname.lastname@example.org). Since the annual awards were initiated in 2004, over 150 students have received category winner, special commendation and merit awards as well as approximately €100,000 in cash prizes. Most have gone on to pursue careers in architecture, engineering, design and product development.
The Third Level Student Wood Awards received entries from 18 universities, institutes of technology and colleges of further education since the competition was launched. It has been a key event in the WMF calendar of events and we hope to relauch it in the near future but need the support of the forestry and forest products industry, third level colleges and the architectural and engineering communities who believe that wood is a key medium in sustainable construction and design.
