The Cotton = High Tech + High Design Student Design Challenge is a high tech and high design competition supported by Cotton Incorporated exclusively for North Carolina State University College of Textiles students. The competition encourages students to design products showcasing the many ways cotton can be used in high tech and high design garments and products while increasing awareness and understanding of cotton fiber and yarn.
Cotton = High Tech + High Design , is intended to emphasize the natural advantages of cotton fibers as well as the aesthetic and performance benefits of cotton when creating cotton and technology stories, tabletop exhibits, workshops, and design pieces.
All juried exhibitors will showcase their work at North Carolina’s most visited museum: the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. There will be a private awards ceremony for members and alumni of the College of Textiles, Industry Personnel, and friends and family of the project.
