Providence Academy sophomore wins national contest for chair design
As long as she can remember, Claire Christianson, a Providence Academy sophomore, has wanted to be a designer.
As the winner of Cooper Hewitt’s Student Design Challenge #ThinkOutside, Christianson is that much closer to making her dreams come true.
Christianson won the first-ever nationwide high school design contest hosted by the New York based design museum – in collaboration with Target – for her unique chair design inspired by one a vase from the museum’s collection. Her design was ultimately chosen from among hundreds of submissions in 19 states.
