The sixth annual Daltile Interior Design Scholarship, presented by the ASID Foundation, is extending its entry period to October 13, 2017 due to any students impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. The competition, which will award $27,500 in scholarships, challenges students to reimagine the Booz Allen Hamilton Innovation Center, located in Washington, D.C. The competition will honor a grand prize winner with a $10,000 scholarship, three runners-up with $2,500 scholarships, and the school or university with the most student submissions with a $10,000 grant.
The challenge this year is to be inspired by innovation and have students reimagine the Booz Allen Hamilton Innovation Center by incorporating Fitwel components to create a stimulating and comfortable space for employees. Using the existing Innovation Center footprint, students should look for areas of opportunity throughout the floor plan that can be redesigned to increase occupant health and comfort, on budget.
The grand prize winner will be announced at the Daltile Philadelphia Design Studio during NeoCon East 2017 in Philadelphia. For more information about the Daltile Interior Design Scholarship, please visit www.daltiledesign.com.

The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) believes that design transforms lives. ASID serves the full range of the interior design profession and practice through the Society’s programs, networks, and advocacy. We thrive on the strength of cross-functional and interdisciplinary relationships among designers of all specialties, including workplace, healthcare, retail and hospitality, education, institutional, and residential. We lead interior designers in shared conversations around topics that matter: from evidence-based and humancentric design to social responsibility, well-being, and sustainability. We showcase the impact of design on the human experience and the value interior designers provide.
ASID was founded over 40 years ago when two organizations became one, but its legacy dates back to the early 1930s. As we celebrate nearly 85 years of industry leadership, we are leading the future of interior design, continuing to integrate the advantages of local connections with national reach, of small firms with big, and of the places we live with the places we work, play, and heal.
