The winners of the 2012 American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC) Materials Research Poster Competition have been selected. The competition (developed by AATCC's Materials Interest Group) aims to promote innovative product development from a material structures design perspective. Submissions were invited from both graduate and undergraduate students.

The three themes/categories of this year’s competition were:

Industrial/Technical/Sports Materials, Medical/Biomedical/Protective Materials and Devices, and Functional/Smart/Nano Materials.

And the winners are:

Industrial/Technical/Sports Materials

  • 1st Place – Noise/Sound Reduction Boards for Student Housing by Courtney Milliner, Joshua Cole, Elizabeth Brannon & Hannah Mangum of North Carolina State University
  • 2nd Place – Comparative Study for a Preventative Turf Toe Cleat by Brittainy Krohn & Ugur Kolunsag of Philadelphia University

The winners will also receive complimentary student registration(s) for the 2013 AATCC International Conference. To date, AATCC has awarded $17,000 in prizes to winners of the annual Materials Research Poster Competition.

This year the contest received a record number of entries. All were evaluated on concept originality and research quality, clarity, plus results/discussions/conclusions. The entries for 2012 were of such high quality the judges had a difficult task determining the winners.
