Design Derby Winner Doubles Up
Montclair State University Team Wins Both Awards

This year's Design Derby client was "Morning Glory," a thrift and gift shop whose profits benefit DASI services for victims and survivors of domestic and sexual violence and their families in Sussex County.

The competition, sponsored by the club's Education Committee and Smith Design, was held at the Newton campus of Sussex County Community College. The event brings together schools from throughout the state.

This year's results were noteworthy as, for the first time, a single team captured all honors. A team from Montclair State University won both the Presentation Award and the Design Award.

Thanks to new club President Sherry Fitzgerald and her dedicated colleagues at Sussex County Community College for once again hosting the event, Smith Design for their continued support of the Education Committee and all students and professors that participated. 

A special acknowledgement goes out to club member Nikki Pedersen who participated in his 17th Design Derby.
