The Final Review of the AOL Autos Technology of the Year Design Challenge took place at the College for Creative Studies (CCS) in Detroit on Tuesday, April 17th. As part of this challenge, students were tasked with creating the physical award to be given to the recipient of Technology of the Year at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show. Ten students presented their final designs to a panel of judges, including members from AOL Autos marketing, editorial and video production teams. All designs presented were unique and impressive; however, after careful deliberation, the judges awarded first, second and third place scholarships to three lucky students. First place winner, Brenna Dunn, is finishing her second year at CCS. Brenna, 20, is from Holland, Michigan and is one of the youngest students who participated in the challenge. She is a freelance graphic designer and custom muralist, pursuing a career in providing utilitarian design and craft for a wide range of clientele. Congratulations also, to Andie Mellon and Steven Corraliza, our second and third place winners!

AOL Autos is sponsoring the CCS Crafts Department at their 2012 Student Exhibition Open in May, and looks forward to growing their relationship with CCS through future partnerships!
