-- Submissions due Feb. 6

MINNEAPOLIS and REHOVOT, Israel, Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Stratasys Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS), a leading manufacturer of 3D printers and production systems for prototyping and manufacturing, reminds students that just one week remains to submit designs for the 2013 Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge.  As a new incentive this year, college finalists will have their designs reviewed for possible licensing agreement and commercialization by a major manufacturer in partnership with online inventor community, Edison Nation, which operates the hit TV show, Everyday Edisons.

In its ninth year, the contest invites students worldwide to submit inventive new product designs, redesigns of existing products, or original or redesigned works of art or architecture, for a chance to win scholarship money. Students at the middle school, high school and college level are able to participate in the design challenge.

As in prior years, Stratasys will award nine student winners either $2,500 or $1,000 scholarships in the categories of Middle School and High School Engineering, College Engineering, and Art & Architecture. Designs are awarded based on creativity, usefulness, part integrity and aesthetics. Instructors of the three first-place student winners will receive a tablet computer for use in the classroom. Since the contest's inception, more than $100,000 in scholarships has been awarded to students.

Each submission must:  

  • be a sound mechanical design
  • be realistic and achievable
  • include a clear written description of the design.

This year's contest will also feature the award category, "Engineering a Difference," in which students may compete for a bonus prize. Students whose designs are aimed at solving a great societal challenge will have a chance to win a $250 gift card.
