    About Tenshon® and the Scholarship:

    At Tenshon® we have the interesting and challenging task of merging form and function, creativity with practicality … and we employ valued individuals who glorify these tasks on a daily basis. Whether we are working on large commercial projects, such as stadiums and corporate offices, or taking on more intimate residential spaces, our designers must learn to adapt quickly, perform creatively and think practically.

     

    With that, we are extending that same challenge to students everywhere, who are interested in the fields of architecture, design and/or engineering to create a unique shade sail structure using our standard sized shade sails. The purpose of this scholarship design contest is to ultimately expand your mind to the possibilities found in the tensile fabric industry and reward the stand-out students who best display an aptitude for shade sail design.

    Requirements

    Rules and Regulations

    ● You must be a currently enrolled student!

    ● All entries must utilize only our standard shade sails.

    ● All entries must include at least two shade sails in the design. There is no limitation on how many you can use, just be sure to implement at least two.

    ● All designs must include more than just a stand-alone shade sail; the student should also design the environment in which they are placing the shade sails. (i.e. pool area, patio off a house, roof top deck, etc).

    ● It is acceptable to use Google’s 3D Warehouse for pre-designed spaces and objects, without penalty. NOTE: Although overall design appeal is helpful, we are grading the use and design of the sails within the space and not the space itself.

    ● Students are not allowed to contact Tenshon® directly for design advice or services in their effort to produce their submission. Any student found doing so (at any stage of the contest) will be disqualified.

    ● Once submitted, all designs will become the property of Tenshon® and can be used by Tenshon® for any purpose, regardless of whether or not the submission wins.

    Jan Egerton and Don Smitley Mesothelioma

    Application Deadline October 9th, 2015
    Organization Jan Egerton and Don Smitley Mesothelioma
    Scholarship Amount See website
    Qualifications

    Mesothelioma is a terminal cancer diagnosed in close to 3,000 Americans each year. The only established cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos. Most victims were unwittingly exposed to asbestos at work or while serving in the military. Still others developed mesothelioma through exposure from family members coming home from work with their clothes covered in asbestos fibers.

    Unfortunately, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the annual number of mesothelioma deaths is increasing. According to experts, over 20 million people in the United States are at risk of developing malignant mesothelioma due to asbestos exposure.

    We believe it is important to get the facts out about mesothelioma and asbestos exposure, and especially, to help educate young Americans by researching and writing about one of the below topics:

    • A mesothelioma survivor’s personal story.
    • A history of asbestos use in America.
    • The latest developments in the treatment of mesothelioma.

     

    The essay must be no fewer than 750 and no more than 1,500 words long.

    Requirements

    This essay contest is open to undergraduate and graduate students who are 18-years-old or older and are currently enrolled in a college or university located within the 50 United States or the District of Columbia. U.S. territories are excluded.
