We have 9 students submitted in the THE ANNUAL SEARS DX CANADIAN HIGH SCHOOL DESIGN COMPETITION 2015-16. Though 4 of them got top awards but not the other 5 students, we think they all did very nice and unique concepts with lots of heart and effort. Some pieces really impressed me with the final outcome as they are professional-looking and exceptional to have been created this standard in their young age.

I think it is such a great learning experience for our BWP youth to explore their field of interests and learn how to apply creative art into design. I am glad that through the preparation of this contest panels, students are taught to set up the goal of achieving professionalism in both hand-drawing, digital drawing and design presentation in their early stage. See the next post sharing their creative submissions!

Congratulations to both the 4 winners and 5 submitted students, as I think you all already received the greatest rewards which is the learning experience. Here I share to you their creative submissions.
