2019 Housewares Student Design Competition



Jumpstart your housewares design career by entering the 2019 competition! For complete rules and instructions, read the entry guidelines below before entering online. The online entry deadline is December 18, 2018.

The IHA created its Student Design Competition in 1993 to invigorate the housewares industry with the fresh ideas of top student designers and to encourage young talent to consider careers in the housewares business.

At the International Home + Housewares Show’s annual student competition display, the winning student designers meet business leaders and news media. Many have been hired by IHA member companies and home goods retailers; others have become entrepreneurs, educators and design managers for consumer products companies.

Now in its 26th year, IHA’s competition is unique in the U.S. as the longest-running, industry-sponsored, merit-recognition program for industrial design students.



DEADLINE for upload: December 18, 2018, 5pm CST



Judges allocate a $ 12,000 in cash prize. An additional $3,000 is donated to the
winners’ schools.
