Are you a design activist creating innovative design while promoting equity? Are you using healthy materials and addressing climate change?
Parsons Healthy Materials Lab is hosting the 6th annual Role Models Contest to award design innovations for material use that have no negative impact on the planet. This global contest, open to current students in all disciplines, is looking for the next healthy design role model. The grand prize winner receives $1,000 USD and extensive media coverage.
Projects of all types, including theoretical, proposed, and real, are eligible. Entries can include models, prototypes, artwork, or visual media. Requirements include documentation of the design process through pictures, drawings, or short videos, and an annotated life-cycle diagram summarizing the carbon impact of your design in order to understand how your design responds to the current global climate emergency.
Students currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree-seeking design program are eligible to enter. This includes students in all disciplines and continents.
