AATCC announces the winners of the 2014 AATCC Concept 2 Consumer Student Design Competition. AATCC received 88 entries from various colleges and universities for its tenth annual design competition. 
 
This year’s theme, Boardwalk, asked students to showcase their talent in textile design by creating a swimwear collection for 18-30 year old women. Color palettes could be chosen from the PantoneView Colour Planner Summer 2014.
 
Awards included a first place cash award of US$1,000 along with a copy of Pantone’s Cotton Passport and a US$100 Spoonflower gift certificate; a US$750 award and a US$100 Spoonflower gift certificate for second place; and two US$100 awards for honorable mentions and US$50 Spoonflower gift certificates.  
 
Winners are listed as below:
1st Place: Whittled Sands by Emma Sidoriak, University of Delaware
2nd Place: Architectonic Armory by Mercedes Garcia-Reyes, Kansas State University
Honorable Mentions:  
Bali Tides by Jordynn Beckman, University of Wisconsin-Stout
Native Pride by Elizabeth Gilligan, Drexel University 
 
Taking part in the competition was both a learning experience and fun activity for the award winners. "The best and worst part about doing the Competition was that I was working on it in the midst of finishing up my senior year," says first place winner Emma Sidoriak, University of Delaware. "I used the Competition as an outlet for my creative juices that were otherwise pent up because of the stress and anxiety of a hectic semester. I really enjoyed myself working on this project." The Concept 2 Consumer Design Competition was not Sidoriak’s first experience of AATCC. 
 
"I helped to found a new club on campus, a UD student chapter of AATCC, of which I was President; this was a great leadership experience." Sidoriak says that AATCC membership is important to her future career. "I think being an AATCC member will be beneficial in the future because the AATCC network sheds light on others in the industry with various backgrounds, yet similar values to my own when it comes to the importance of textiles and responsibility."
 
"I enjoyed researching the current swimwear trends as well as the color trends for the season," notes second place winner Mercedes Garcia-Reyes, Kansas State University. She says she also learned to have more confidence in her CAD and design skills. "I never expected to place in the competition, and just did it for my class and for fun, so it really did take me by surprise when I found out that I had won second place out of so many entries."
